    Nice shots Chris. The only time I get to see freights or "snow" is on this computer or on TV. We seldom get snow here and am off the beaten track as far as trains go. We do have a local that comes out of ?? and delivers cars in Woodland and then the Yolo engine spots them.

    Cool pics! I wonder what those loads in the gondolas are? Generators? Those big red diesel units are impressive!

    I LIKE it! :) I go by a similar scene in St. Paul on the way to Red Wing, MN. I usually ask my wife to drive when we head down that way so I can rubber neck the hump yard.

    Great shots. I love CP stuff - thinking about putting a couple of SD90Macs on the HO track just to have them pass through. Do you have any pics of them?

    You sure have been busy Chris in spite of this very cold weather we are having. I stick at home these days waiting for it to warm up a bit before I go out with my camera again

    Rusted: you may be closer to the SD90MACs than we are -- they're based in Winnipeg and I think they run across the prairies.
