Sailor's delight is predicted by the glowing orange sky, battle hardened GP9 7071 is reflected in a small puddle as the Conductor throws a switch to turn south and head home. Leaving the Guelph Junction railway, this weekend extra will head south on the old Fergus sub then turn west following the orange glow home for the night to Kitchener. 

Note to snake: my family was at *WAL MART* nearby and I chanced on the train that evening :) Guess what they were buying???

  1. Absolutely love this!

  2. The Pond Master hath spoken. :-)
    To get someone flipping a switch in the reflection is quite remarkable.

  3. Thank you – the thing is, it was also the only place I knew the train would stop so I could pull off a sharp photo, was shooting with my 50mm 1.8 fairly wide open at 1/30 … had to pray something was sharp

  4. Stephen – this side business of yours – Props4Pix is really paying off for you !

  5. Would you like to subscribe, snake?

  7. Very nice image Steve. L568 would use this same consist the following day as well.
