In addition, the Alta Steel 80 ton switcher and 40 ton crane will be moved later this week - on rail by CN.
These donations by LaFarge and Alta Steel are superb additions to our collection. They were identified by John Staples, Rail Safety Officer, Alberta Transportation. John was formerly at CN's Diesel Shop and has been very supportive of our efforts to preserve rail history. It took a long time to complete the moves! Thanks John.
9000 will be moved, probably on Thursday to CN's family days. Ted and Jim have been getting her ready, with the help of Dave Muma. The southbound freight from Fort McMurray will pick 9000 up. Ted and Jim will put her into the consist - probably right behind the road power- and finally park 9000 in Walker Yard. Thanks to Kevin Franchuk for all his work to get these events moving.
