CP 9815 is about to head back East to Montreal with the Holiday train. Sorry Calgary, Vancouver and others down the line - you didn't make it!

In classic RR dusplication, 9815 will repeat the Saskatoon-Lanigan, SK portion, before heading south to Regina and continuing westward. This
"clean" photo was very hard to make, with many people going in and out of the cab, very crowded in there! http://tinyurl.com/2cxtw2

Note the cone replacing the Christmas tree. Looks like it froze en-route and din't make it. Seriously, where is it? The trees on top of the stage car were coned off as well.
So how long was that thing in town for? 5 minutes? I went down at around 11:40 and it was gone.
Wow, I left @ 11:30am, and it was still there. He sure was in a hurry to get out to Regina! The engine was all set to go @ 10:50am already...

He was @ Lanigan @ 1:05am, so that's a Sutherland arrival of ~3am, hence about 9 hours in town.

Thanks for the rating.
When I got word from the yard office that the train took off, me and Dad went all the way to Elstow before giving up the search. Only by going to Bradwell and tracing the CN Watrous line back to town did we catch anything. But, I think you deserve this one for yourself. I got the RCP when it came through town.
