Same train. About a mile to go before reaching the top of the hill.
 
The heated exhaust meeting the chilled air produces a nice, steam like effect.

The tail end of turner train 805 comes to a hault as empty grainer 338 flies into the siding at 25MPH.

The old 479 has just topped Pincher hill and passes one of the signature wind turbines. There has to be at least 200 of those things in the Pincher Creek area.

Two sharp looking 38's stretching a train of gondola cars loaded with scrap, westbound out of the siding at McLean, SK.  They put on a really nice show, lots of noise and smoke, and took the train away right smartly.  Nothin' like a couple of good old non-turbo'd GM's pulling hard!

A nasty trio of GM's just a humpin' eastbound near McLean, SK.  I've been told that if you get the train over the hump at McLean, she's clear sailing after that.  In the days of solid SD40 power on Toronto bound coal trains, CP could take one off at Broadview, as the ruling grade had been defeated.

Neat picture. One question though, why is there an SBU on that tail end remote?

Good question.  It doesn't need a marker as it has a CP tailend remote.  Turner trains still come into Sparwood with SBU's.  One reason could be that the trains are built at a terminal which doesn't have as many locotrol trains back east.  Either way an SBU is redundant with a tailend remote.

So you don't need the red marker light if using a tail end remote? Or do you just turn the noselight on dim or something?

The last time  the "red marker" was required anywhere in Canada was 2359 May 27th, 2008.  One minute after that the current version of the CROR came into effect and while SBU still exist they are for braking system telemetry purposes, not to mark the end of the train.
 
There are plenty of sites with copies of the rulebook available. Just google "Canadian Rail Operating Rules"
 
Out here on Vancouver Island where they used to use a red disc for a marker, they just stopped putting anything at the end.

When a remote is on the tail end it is essentially a 74 foot, 430,000 lb SBU that can develope tractive effort, DB, etc. Also, IIRC, CP had an exemption from Transport Canada that because their engines are red with the reflective "CP" on the end, that would satisfy the rule for having a marker.
