Are you traveling, Lenny? That doesn't look Canadian at all! (regardless - a nice shot, as always)

I biked 27 miles (roundtrip) the other day to shoot the "local" shortline.
When I arrived there was a Pan Am train with a pair of SD40-2s on point outlawed by the old station.


A few hours later the Pan Am Rotterdam Junction local came by to drop off a single covered hopper for the Battenkill.


Not long after they left, a crew came to moved the canned train westwards.


And finally, around 2pm the Battenkill showed up to swap cars at the interchange.

if you can't conduct yourself, conduct freight

No, this still very much a local shot taken in the Montreal suburb of Dorval.

There is a CSX line that comes north into Montreal after all...
