Remarks & Notes 
A CN transfer from the Vancouver area to Thornton Yard enters the east wye of the Fraser River CN/SRY/BNSF bridge which is situated immediately east of the Pattullo highway bridge which connects New Westminster with Surrey, BC. This is a draw bridge which permits commercial water traffic to move up the Fraser River as well as serving the three railroads plus Amtrak. In this view the railroads were still CN/BC Hydro/BN. The CP also uses foreground trackage to reach New Westminster from their Pt. Coquitlam yard east of Vancouver.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.

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