    Wow! Because of the web site: www.railroadtown.ca/
    Canadian National has invited me to go on a all day train trip in the cab of the #115 from Capreol Ontario to Foloyet and back. About a 400 mi. trip! And all the pictures I can take!!!!
    The best part is that is that I am going on May 8th. my 52nd. birthday!

    In the cab - good!
    On the buffers - bad!

    Nice one - I'm green with envy, and I'm a steam buff.

    Happy birthday in advance. bday1

    Great pics, David. It looks like the sky was cloudy enough to make an interesting sky, but enough sun to give good lighting. HAPPY B'DAY!!! What a present!
