Couple more from my trip.


Los Angeles



Arizona (I justify this one here because I took the train to get to where I could take the photo)

I had the opportunity to take the NS class for first responders today at Bayview Yard, Baltimore. They have recently put this train together illustrating 4 different tank cars, two nicely transformed boxcars that are mobile classrooms, a dedicated GP38-2 #5642, and there are plans to add two flat cars. Fire based personnel took a hazmat class in one car and police dept people took a grade crossing accident investigation class.
No farms, no food.

Support your local farmer's market!

On June 25, 2009 CP 9301 sits in the weeds behind the former Dominion Bridge plant in Winnipeg being stripped of parts.

One of only 4 SD90MAC-H units that CP owned, originally CP intended to upgrade their fleet of SD9043macs aswell but as mechanical and later computer issues plagued the H-macs those plans were canceled. Due to these problems the 4 units were often kept close to Winnipeg and were my favorite locomotives on CP.

By the end of 2010 all 4 units will be sent to Montreal to be scrapped...
