Trip to Edmonton

Wow...What a great time to get back west to shoot trains. The weather was 10+ degrees and the snow was gone. Dave Hackett and I had the opportunity to see the new 2200s and 8000s doing their thing as well as an endless parade of current mainline power. Even foreign UP stuff showed up in a trailing position consist.
The shot even show a GP9 switcher trying its hardest to be an alco. Smoke everywhere:). In one go around we had a CN policeman stop and give us a warning for being to close to the tracks. Hmm I wonder if the fine will come in the mail. Keep those fingers crossed.

Great Pics and layout videos. Just getting back into train/model RR after being out of the hobby for many years. Found your group looking for modelers in the Montreal area. Just starting a new layout in my basement. Boy, have things changed since the early 70's.
