The Muskeg Mixed Train in Alberta, May 1985 -- 11 Photos

When I asked the Canadian Railroads Group of Train Orders about these photos, tsokolan responded, "Looks like Roger rode the "Muskeg Mixed" which IIRC was the last mixed train on the CNR. Service was between Edmonton and Fort McMurray AB and ended in the early 1980s."

 

Roger Puta took pictures of the train working at Lac La Biche, Alberta and rode the train from there both in the cab and in the coach. I'm pretty sure he rode to Edmonton.

 

1. and 2. CN 4603, CN 5517 and CN 4270 at Lac La Biche. CN GP9 4603 GP9 was Northern Alberta Railway 202 and it is now a slug CN 252.

 

Baggage car CN 7856, a coach, and caboose CN 79101 (ex. Northern Alberta Railway) at Lac La Biche.
