  1. CN 5650 - SD75I

    CN 5650 - SD75I

    Although I love the Dash 9's, the SD75I has got tought looks as well. Caught leading a westbound with the help of a SD60F.
  2. New Procor hopper

    New Procor hopper

    Procor operates thousands of tankers and some hoppers, these been the cleanest I've ever seen!
  3. Pretiest boxcar I've seen

    Pretiest boxcar I've seen

    This CN boxcar has a pretty nice grafifi job in my opinion.
  4. CN Connections

    CN Connections

    What a pair! CN 5251, SD40-2(W), BC Rail 746, SD40-2, and a WC hopper. Looks like the have all the connections form coast to coast to coast.
  5. Winter on the CN

    Winter on the CN

    SD60F, CN 5517, draper tape unit, leads a mixed train with the help of a Dash 9-44CW and a SD40-2.
  6. Mixed yard train

    Mixed yard train

    Cut-down S-3 ALCO, CN 268, leads CN 7251, GP9RM, on switching duty. Notice the variety of cars, coil, autoracks, intermodals, boxcars, tankers, hoppers, gondolas, platforms...
  7. Garbage trucks

    Garbage trucks

    The good thing about a mixed train, is that you can see anything, including garbage trucks.
  8. Friendly intermodal

    Friendly intermodal

    I generally don't like intermodals, when I think that for every container there could of been a boxcar, but with good power and a wave, they're cool.
  9. Snowed in

    Snowed in

    CN 2694, 2004 Dash 9-44CW is having his first winter, and thus froze up a bit... Leading an eastbound intermodal with a SD75I.
  10. All year round.

    All year round.

    The CN mainline looking west. Autumn rain, winter cold and summer with a train in the distance. Mainline used by CN, BNSF, VIA, CEMR (shortline) and specials like AOE.
  11. Lonely curve

    Lonely curve

    I wanted to catch a train on the curve, there was just no traffic. Oh well, maybe next time. Here's what it looks like with trains running: http://www.railroadforums.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=16546&sort=1&cat=500&page=10...
  12. CN OHIO crane

    CN OHIO crane

    1976 CN 50474, 40 ton OHIO crane pushed a platform, also pulling another one. Notice a MOW operator on the front. I got to observe this thing lay fresh tracks from the car it pulled, then travel the mainline to rest at the MOW depot. Quite an impresive piece of machinery.
  13. ONR IMS on CN Rivers sub

    ONR IMS on CN Rivers sub

    CN & ONR have a power sharing agreement, whereby CN gives them power for heavy coal trains, ONR in turn gives back whenever it can spare (or something close). Normally their units are capped in Northern Ontario, here however their newest power is taking an Intermodal out West! ONR 2105 is...
  14. Steel Caterpillar

    Steel Caterpillar

  15. GP9 smoke

    GP9 smoke

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

    My best shot?

    I think this is my best shot to date. The sky and two Dash 9-44CW's (CN 2646 & 2587) made it happen.
  17. Slug leading

    Slug leading

    CN 278, GP9 slug, leads a local, with CN 7218, GP9RM for power.
  18. 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.
  19. CN GP9RM

    CN GP9RM

    The view you'll see if you're being run over by a train. Shot from public property, obviously it wasn't moving. Looks a bit like a 2300 series ALCO with the short hood, round roof & no dithlights...
  20. 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.
