CPR 1982 Calgary

Here are a few photos of the Calgary station area taken during our trip west in 1982.

Looking east. 
The sign on the end of the heavyweight says 'ENTER OTHER END'.

My brother has let me know that it was CP Rule Instruction Car 49,
... and that it was donated to the Port Moody Station Museum in 1987.

Looking west at the tailend of No 1.

Looking east at the headend of No 1.
A switcher is changing the power.
The Palliser Hotel is to the left.

The road numbers are 1432, 1962, 1423.

A roughly colourized postcard from the late 1940s?
