We arrived at Spillimacheen well ahead of the coal train we were chasing. Spillimacheen is at milepost 102 on the Windermere Subdivision. The lady operator was outside in a lounge chair sunbathing in her bikini. I asked if there would be any eastbound trains meeting our westbound between here and Golden. She said that it would meet one here and the local at Horse Creek. She then went into the station and put on a moo-moo.
