  1. Traffic jam

    Traffic jam

    On one of my first visits to Portage JCT (I visit that place about once/twice a week) I was lucky enough to catch a great traffic jam. I've seen bottlenecks since, but this one is by far the best. Let's break it down: In the foreground, E/B CN local with CN 1435 & 7220 (GMD1u & GP9RM)...
  2. Ordinary world

    Original GP9 in everyday service, running daily on the mainline. Sometimes long-hood forward.
  3. GP9 smoke

    GP9 smoke

    An original GP9 smokes up while leading the local on the mainline. It's a regular daily train (exept weekends).
  4. My first digital shot

    My first digital shot

    The first RR picture I made with a digital camera. No zoom, just aimed at what moved... Leading the local, original GP9 in everyday service.
  5. BNSF local

    BNSF local

    BNSF's daily local (exept weekends), consisting of BNSF 1685 (GP9) and a Operation Lifesaver caboose. Only one car for today.
  6. BNSF 1685

    BNSF 1685

    BNSF 1685 taken 16 Dec 02 on the old BNML (Burlington Northern Midland Line) near Polo Park in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. A very rare sight for this engine indeed as BNSF only runs it on fair weather days.
