SP Trains #1459 CN111 from Gallagher Road, Abbotsford, BC 2020 05 07
Gallagher Road diverges from the line of Canadian National's Yale Sub, but offers a reasonably decent longview. On top of that, it's something different. CN's Train #111 started from the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario a few days ago and is on its final Subdivision into the yard in Surrey, BC. CN's Thornton Yard. CN2918, 100th Anniversary logoed CN3823 and clean-looking CN3276 provide the power for this long string of containers. Our location is just east of the Yale Subdivision Mile 86.1 grade crossing of Beharrel Road.

N.B.The photographer and cameras did not encroach on the railway right-of-way in taking this video. It is dangerous, foolhardy (and illegal) to enter on railway rights-of-way. Just sayin' ... "You don't stand on a runway to watch airplanes."
Skeena Pacific is a supporter of the Operation Lifesaver Canada. Operation Lifesaver (OL) is dedicated to preventing collisions at railway crossings and railway trespassing incidents in Canada. They believe the key to achieving this goal is public education. Operation Lifesaver in Canada is funded by the Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada, working with the rail industry, governments, law enforcement, labour groups, the media, and other organizations and communities from coast to coast to increase awareness about rail safety—because rail safety is a shared responsibility. https://www.operationlifesaver.ca/
