Photographed on CRHA Niagara's "Longest Day" event in 2016 (a 37 year tradition to go out rail-fanning on the Friday closest to the longest day of the year); we couldn't help but admire the ingenuity of this railfan's method of getting a more interesting photographic angle by using a powered parachute. Train itself was CN 2299 and 2512 followed by a long line of mostly autorack cars.

  1. You guys are crazy!!! You wouldn’t get me up in one of those flying contraptions even if RP was paying me to post here!!! :o )

  2. Thank you – I had a better photo with the parachuter very close to the end of the train, but at the time (of posting this pic) I wasn’t sure if vertical-format photos were allowed, so I chose this one

  3. I could see Mr. Mooney getting a shot like that. Lol. The powered parachute is not a bad idea.

    I’m sure if it is one of RP’s members, it’ll end up on here. If it is Mr. Mooney, then I will be laughing for days on end.

  4. Points – if you can get it on the top of that auto rack

  5. Arnold Mooney..you are clear to land !

  6. Flying foam! :)
