Saskatchewan?

With the right framing, Saskatchewan sure looks like remote Northern Ontario. Those steep hills, I mean flat Prarie, doesn't help.

The last of this year's snow is melting away in the shadow, as freshly painted CP 5943 heads an Intermodal west to Calgary.

2:55pm CP 457 on waterbridge (MP 111.5? Sutherland sub)
CP 5943-5775-6079
12 IMS (36 TEU)/25 hoppers/flat/4 hoppers

That's all CP calls it. Quite convinient when a W/B is coming in. The yardmaster says "Call me when you're on the waterbidge", then they call "456 on the waterbridge" etc. I agree, the name is kinda lame.

Yep, that's the formal name. Most people call it the "CP bridge", CP itself calls it the "waterbridge". The city on the other hand calls it the CN bridge! There were construction plans posted months ago for the area (detrours etc.) in a local newspaper, and this bridge was clearly marked as CN.
