We're at Welsh, the junction between the Iroquois Falls and Devonshire Subdivisions July 2004 as northbound 213 rolls around the bend with loads picked up from Abitibi Consolidated with SD75I 2103 at the point. Now, there's something a little different about this photo as 2103 is actually pointed south. Today the unit is pulling 213 north backwards due to the fact that since 2100's are equipped to run "butt first" her Crew decided to simply run 2103 backwards rather than go through the lengthy process of wyeing the unit at Swastika or Porquis since Englehart's wye was shut down due to a derailment that day. Leaving the unit pointed south will also save time for the Crew at Cochrane since wyeing the unit won't be necessary there also.
