  1. VIA 6436

    VIA 6436

    A sunny Wednesday afternoon at Halifax Station. Historic Pier 21 in the background.
  2. Fairview Shops, Halifax

    Fairview Shops, Halifax

  4. Dartmouth, NS

    Dartmouth, NS

    I've never been to Dartmouth, however here's a picture of it, taken from the other side of the bay, the Halifax waterfront. Two CN SD75I's have come off the Gypsum train and are waiting in the yard. Although it is hard to see, a 47xx series GP38-2 is hiding behind them, with a load of autoracks...
  5. CN 193 48

    CN 193 48

  7. Ren. baggage car

    Ren. baggage car

  8. VIA's Ocean

    VIA's Ocean

    VIA's Ocean (Halifax-Montreal) has just arrived at its final destanation with the relatively new, much hated by railfans, Ren. equippement. From today on this is the only equipement on the train displacing the Budd trainset.
  9. Rockingham yard sign

    Rockingham yard sign

    Every yard needs a good looking sign. I just love this one!
