Im sure folks around there have bigger worries than taking photos. Anyone know how hard hit is the CP line and facilites through Calgary. Hear the Bow River is an ocean right now. Mustve had a massive snowmelt this spring +rain. The Saddledome hockey arena is under water. I heard 100.000 people have to evacuate.

Of course our sympathies and best wishes to those affected by the flooding - must be overwhelming...
 
Anybody got video or pics of the extra train movements over Huntingdon/Sumas or the Whiterock BNSF line if they are diverting trains through the States?
Thanks.

The CPR's partially collapsed Bonnybrook bridge, damaged by the flooding. Taken on public property from a bike path that parallels the river and tracks.
