Excellent forlorn scenes. Especially like the F-Units.

The fence line and cattle structure are really nice elements in your first photo, Bob. Pushing your K64 to the limit, right? That's a nice moody pair of photos.

A major incident happened at Lundbreck Falls in the 1980's.Westbound CP freight 979 with many cars of LPG in the consist stopped at the gas plant at Sentinel AB. The train was operating with a caboose and a four person crew. The conductor and trail end brakeman walked up to help with the switching. When they cut off from the train, they "bottled" (retained the air in the brake pipe) on the tail end portion of the train, and went into the plant, leaving the train unattended. While the entire crew was some distance away from the standing portion, the train started to roll eastward.
It ran away through a couple of communities. The unattended portion of the train derailed near Lundbreck Falls, and several of the cars of LPG exploded. No one was injured. The crew were fired for a couple of years.

Great photos!  Thanks for sharing!

That stretch of CP between Pincher and Lundbreck is awash in excellent photo angles and excellent scenery.  Wish I had a telephoto lens though......
