Another cold winter day at Cranbrook. I guess my age must be getting to me as I have no idea why I was there on that date, but it must have been work related. As for the snow, I never had much luck taking pictures that combined snow & bright light. Catching CP 1631 at work is great, but the man at the switch is what caught my eye. It shows what his life was like in the winter. He was an important part of railway operations that seldom got the credit that it deserved. The people on the ground who make things work, they are the important ones.
