Kind of an accidental capture... I saw smoke near the road and pulled off to see if I could see what it was. I couldn't, and I turned around to walk back to my car and saw this.

This is a good buddy of mine, Luc, at the controls of CN 4762 as they worked the train yard in Moncton, New Brunswick.

VIA Rail employees were set to go on strike this morning, but fortunately a last-minute deal was reached. Glad to hear the trains will keep moving!

Lord of the starfields
Ancient of Days
Here's a song in your praise
Wings of the storm cloud
Beginning and end
You make my heart leap
Like a banner in the wind
O love that fires the sun
Keep me burning.
Lord of the starfields
Sower of life,
Heaven and earth are
Full of your light
Voice of the nova
Smile of the dew
All of our yearning
Only comes home to you
O love that fires the sun
keep me burning

There are days you have to be happy just because.
Not because you ate breakfast this morning and is not hungry,
or you had a good night's sleep in a comfy bed,
not because you drove to work incident free.
Be happy just because
Oh yeah, just because

This is known as Pope's Hill in the Birds Hill Provincial Park in Manitoba. It hosted Pope John Paul II in 1984. I had to dash out here Saturday night to record this sunset. :)

An oil train waits patiently in Dilworth Yard in Minnesota near Fargo, ND. Note the car behind the two locomotives. This is a "buffer" car used to separate the crew from the potentially hazardous material in the tank cars. I don't know if one car distance makes any difference, but those are the regulations.

This is a CT-155 Hawk, a training aircraft for Canadian and other nations' pilots. We were at the zoo, which is in the flight path for the airport, when I heard a "different" sound and noticed this baby coming in for a landing. Fortunately I had my camera on my hip and it was a quick shot.

I combined 5 shots from the same location into an animated GIF, just for fun. I guess this is what Auto Awesome does, but I don't know how to use that feature. :)

Here's a photo from 2007 of the Chaleur crossing a bridge near Port Daniel, Quebec. Sadly the line north of New Carlisle, QC has been out of service for quite a while, so no trains have crossed this trestle in a while.

I was browsing through Lightroom and came across my folder of lightning photos from August 2011. We had a great storm roll through our fair city and I shot these from my back deck.

When I was walking through the Toronto airport last week, I noticed they had a "cameras in Canada" display in their museum area. Fortunately I had time to browse, so I had a look and took a few photos. This is the Kodak Petite, built between 1929 and 1933, and marketed to the ladies. Fascinating stuff.

A two-fer for #BridgesOverTuesday and #TransportTuesday . VIA 692 rolls over the Red River in Winnipeg this past Saturday afternoon after its 2 day journey from Churchill. Note the high water... not a big flood year this year. My wife tells me that in the 1997 flood, the water was just about touching the bottom of the train bridge.

Back in April I flew to San Francisco via Denver. When we landed in Denver I saw the winter conditions outside and was concerned we would not make it out that day. Fortunately the DEN airport is well equipped for winter and after a fleet of vehicles plowed the runway, we took off and made it to SFO after only a short delay. This was the "view from the wing" before de-icing.

I just wish there was a Tim Hortons coffee shop somewhere in the frame to make this just a bit more Canadian than just the geese and Canadian Pacific engines.

GO Transit engine 623 pushes hard on the end of a train as it leaves the Etibicoke North station in Toronto, Ontario. This is an MP40PH-3C, manufactured by Motive Power. It has 4000 horses under the hood giving a top speed of 174 km/hr (108 mph), which I'm sure it never approaches in normal service.

Transit on the GO
GO Transit operates a variety of commuter trains and buses in the greater Toronto area. My favourite of course are the trains! Here's a GO train leaving the Etobicoke North station in Toronto. This is the front of the train - they operate with an engine on one end pushing or pulling, and in this case there is an engineer on this end looking out the end windows and operating the engine remotely.

Many industries that rely on rail transport need some way of moving train cars on their own property. They can ask the railway to do it but the cost is too high. Some have their own locomotive(s). One sub hobby I have is photographing industrial locomotives. I spotted this one in a satellite view (http://goo.gl/maps/voV6m) of Fargo, North Dakota at a Cargill processing facility, so when we were in Fargo recently I made a point of going to photograph it. This was the best angle I could get and I was quite a distance away. I can't identify what locomotive it is except to say I think it might be an Alco based on the roof line.. but I could be wrong.

Three views of the same train. It has been very very dry here in Winnipeg and a passing car threw up a dust cloud that obscured the approaching train.. shooting into the morning sun didn't help. The second photo shows brutish ex-BNSF 2195 C40-8W trailing, and the third photo shows the train going around a bend in the tracks with the two locomotives barely visible a couple of miles away.

A CN train rounds the bend outside Winnipeg. We don't have a lot of curves in these Prairie tracks... you have to seek them out.
