a westbound CP COFC, TOFC and doublestack container train is running through the Bow Valley between Calgary and Cochrane. At this time, it was a beautiful quiet walk in ranch and farm country. Now it is a Provincial Park, with walking and bike trails (and probably more fences. It was my favorite local place to go to shoot trains.
In spite of the much easier access, I have not seen that many photos taken in this area. I did one very recently, however. and learned that the hill in the background once hosted a sandstone quarry.
