All Aboard

FTLComm - Tisdale - Saturday, april 20, 2002

When a passenger train was about to pull away from the station the conductor or trainman would shout out "All Aboard" which usually sounded much more like "ABORRRRD".

Passenger trains have become pretty much a thing of the past but Thursday evening at 7:30 Northern Steel's tanks were loaded and ready for some one to shout out "Aborrrrd!"

Pulled by a pretty dirty pair of deseils they will make their way West. Through the rockies across the border to the port of Seattle then onto barges for the trip up the inland passage and then hugging the coast from Rupert up to Alaska.
