    Hi All,

    I'm trying to get back onto the gauge after a long absence (New Daughter!!! :)

    In November last I had to Drive my late father in law's car from Vancouver to Dartmouth NS (what a trip). I had time constraints so couldn't stop and railfan but I did take a few pictures on the prairies and at Craigellachie in the Rockies. There were some fantastic shots at Rogers and Kicking Horse but it was snowing badly and I was white knuckling the drive so didn't want to stop!

    anyhow, here are some of the pics

    Thanks for the comments!

    I wish I'd had more time to explore but the prairies were fantastic with the rail line so visible, I'd heartily recommend the drive between Calgary and Manitoba (you have to check out sunrise over the prairies its astonishing!)
