Westbound at Herbert
Finally I saw the same locomotive a second time, in other words. I hadn't realized it until five minutes ago when I transcribed the records of a couple of CP locomotive sightings from the voice memo file on my phone. Altogether I'd spotted 69 different locomotives (from 3015 to 9897 over seven years) before 8795 showed up that second time.
I'd made it as far as Gull Lake from Pigeon lake, south of Edmonton, the day before, which I spoke about here.
The rain might have cleared off whether I saw 8795 again or not. And the Riders might end the winless streak anyway.
But chances are better now.
