There has always been something about the " Canadian " that catches my attention. The night of October 13, 1981 was no exception.

While working as a trainman for CP in Revelstoke, the camera was easy to throw in the grip, but not a tripod. As I walked to the crew bus for a ride to the head-end of our eastbound coal train, whose caboose can be seen just to the right of the 1410, I turned briefly, liked what I saw and decided to try the shot.  Hand held, Kodachrome 64 pushed to the limit, and only so much available light. Oh for the digital days.

I was pleased with the result.  The hogger taking a last look at the orders, the watering and fueling of the units complete, and the headlight just turned to bright.  Seconds later, No.1 would be westbound on the Shuswap Sub. and I would be rolling east to Golden.
