021807 WC 6916 04

The chase is on, back in Feb 2007 one of our weekend goals was to chase an E-Rail across the old Soo Line from Ladysmith to points East. Feb 18th wold be that day. It turned out to be a set of what got termed the SD45 killers as these units rapidly siplaced the WC SD45 fleet after the CN takeover. doesn't matter in this case as it was a chase over the old Soo Line. We started the chase in Ladysmith when the train took the turn off the Superior Mainline and headed East, here engineer Dave Schultz handles the train through a series of hills and valleys that no doubt kept you on your toes with a heavy tac train. Given I suck at taking notes, I'll go on a limb and say this was at Tony, judging by the pile of rail.
