    Fantastic photos Mike. Looks like you sure found the right job. Drive the real things at work then go home and do it again on your layout. Now that's livi'n

    Love that section between Lake Louise and Field BC! It's my favourite spot in all of Canada for watching the trains. When I get a trip to Calgary, I usually head up to Field on the Friday afternoon and book into the Kicking Horse Lodge in Field. From there on, it's pick a spot between Lake Louise and Field and wait for the trains to come.

    Some day, I'm going to try and get a ride in the cab!

    Those are really beautiful shots, Mike.
