Remarks & Notes 
The crewman of FRVR 2402 gives CNW 8511 a wave as the loaded coal train heads to the junction at St. Francis in April of 1993. It would seem unusual that they would put the coal train ahead of the freight, but the coal trains would sometimes stall on the grade west of here and the FRVR power could then be used to give the train a shove.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
