We left Calgary at 5:05pm on Friday December 19th in Murray's truck. Due to the bad weather we didn't go through the city, but took hwy 24 South to Lethbridge. The roads were fairly good with a few icy sections.
We headed south to the border at Coutes and then to Shelby. We arrived in Shelby at 10pm. The border guard at Coutes was really nice. He is a rail fan too. We invited him to Calgary for the Supertrain show that we
are involved in.
