A day on the Winter Valley Regional Railway. We find Extra 9034, leased CN power, passing through Hudson’s Mill just as the sun comes up on a mid September morning in 1975. By 0900 she is racing through down town Pearson and the way to Winter Valley. The A/B”s will slow at a crossing outside of town and ease into the station while a pair of SW1200RS’s shift Ontario Northland cars onto a siding. The Winter Valley power, an SD40-2 and a GP9 will take over from here moving the load up through High Pass to Colder and then down to Grande Prairie. There they will fuel up, sort a few cars and move on out to Edmonton and the rest of the world.
