CN C764 blasts through scenic fall colours at track speed.

The gathering clouds bring a different look to the local scenery as A460 rolls in to the west end of Burns Lake. That is Decker Lake in the background.
The second Q197 on the new run from Memphis to Prince Rupert (B.C.) highballs through the open northern country. CN 8832, CN 8011, CN 2548 provide the power.
