Happy Thanksgiving Canada, Columbus Day USA. Today I'm thankful CP put a Red Barn in the lead position :-)
The Golden to Cranbrook local makes its way south through Parson early on a summer morning.
Leading the local, CP 5866 South speeds through Spillimacheen. CP has just finished extending the siding here.
Two old warriors head south along the Windermere Sub with air support from a couple of mallards.
Fall is in the air. The Golden to Cranbrook local travels through a foggy morning.
It looks like times gone by: 3 SD40-2s pulling a string of empty coal gons down the Windermere Sub past a sawmill and beehive burner.
The daily wayfrieght approaches Harrogate. A later than usual departure time, and high water in the Columbia Wetlands made for some great scenes.
The wayfrieght is coming up to Canal Flats to do some switching at the sawmill.
A SOO SOO train on the Windermere Sub. Two SD60s lead today's wayfrieght south to Cranbrook. The sun is just starting to crest over the Rockies.
CP 5930 and 5983 stops on the main and prepares to deliver empty bulkhead flats to CANFOR's sawmill in Radium.
'Twas the day before Christmas and Jimmy finally gets a Red Barn in the lead position.
'Twas the day before Christmas and Jimmy finally gets a Red Barn in the lead position. Now for Christmas I'll just ask for longer days and stronger sunlight.
The local to Cranbrook passes under the bluffs at Radium. Traveler's note: This view is from the second from the top viewpoint.
