Picture21994/08, CPR/Napinka Sub. Mile 35.5, Cartwright yard, W. of station grounds with Tuscan red painted storage shed on S. side of main track. A speeder trailer rests on the N. side of track beside the Cartwright sign. This trailer was fast becoming obsolete as train crews were switching to special rail trucks which could travel on roads as well as on the track, thus providing the benefits of a crew cab, cargo capacity and other conveniences.
