    Much to my delight a second coal hauler pulled in also waiting for a crew change. Note the open door. A young lady was the the engineer that got off here.
    The loco is CN 2545 a Dash 9-44CWLclassEF644b built in 1997[​IMG]

    This is the CN building where crews are billeted. Mountain railroading must be awesome.

    Really cool pics. I especially love those mountains! It's pretty flat here where I live, so mountains and big hills are a treat.

    And I agree: mountain railroading must be pretty neat.

    Mountains & Traintracks.

    Mountains are a novelty for Australians. This place is so flat! Highest mountain is only just above 7000 ft, then it's more like a gentle slope to get there. I'll get to see those Rockies one of these days.
