A special promoting Breakfast for Learning picking up speed as it leaves Coquitlam for Agassiz and beyond.

I was very impressed by the affable security provided by CP staff and CP police. Some of the rail fans were less impressive. Those parked by the road ready for the fast getaway to chase off down Highway 7 – a busy suburban street not a freeway – to beat it to the next photo op. Or the youth with the scanner tuned to CP dispatchers who made completely misleading announcements that could have lead to tragedy. And the strange people who have to stand in front of the loco to have their picture taken with it!
