Trackside Log for Sunday, February 10, 2013

It was a stunning sunny day in Fenwick thanks to a fresh layer of snow. I left the scanner on and ventured out to see a couple of the day's trains.

  • 1411 Fenwick - CP 255 north - CP 9520-CP 8882
  • 1524 Fenwick - CP 254 south - CP 8847-CP 9526

Although I haven't done much this year, I really do enjoy photography in the snow. I'm quite pleased with these winter photographs.

Trackside Log for Thursday, February 7, 2013

This morning I was just about to get my day going when I heard an unusual sounding horn approaching from the south. I noticed the day before that maintenance of way crews had dropped off some brand new ties. My guess was that the approaching train was this.

  • 0812 Fenwick - CP northbound MOW - Brandt Peterbilt hi-rail

My guess proved to be accurate. I don't often see the hi-rail trucks pulling rail cars, so I was pleased to photograph this one.

Trackside Log for Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Happy New Year.

After spending a nice New Year's Eve with my family I returned home for New Year's Day. I wasn't expecting much, but I turned the scanner on at home anyway. Luck was with me and the Hamilton Turn made an appearance in town. I waited for its northward return trip for a photograph in the excellent sun drenched, snowy landscape.

  • 1317 Fenwick - CP 541 north - CP 9014-CP 5910

I was lucky with the clouds floating through the sky. Just after this photograph one interfered with the sun.
