….Clear Board....and one of my favourite places...


...a quartet of six motor units: 6049 / 5513 / 5531 / 4566 rolls into Parry Sound preparing to spot the Van at the station to entrain personnel


  SD40-2  /  SD40  /  SD40  /  M630


 CP Rail #405 at Parry Sound 11:35 August 11 1985 Kodachrome by S. Danko
 

  what's interesting


  always something going on at Parry Sound, whether it's daily VIA #9 & #10 ; a work train - witness the work train Van - and /or the signal / maintenance crew activity


  note the front end of  ' Parisienne Atlantica ' on the extreme right, of Newfoundland road trip fame...


  recommend camping at  nearby Oastler Lake Provincial Park, literally steps away from the CN and CP mains. Real treat overnight.....heard  of many campers abandoning their long weekend campsites Saturday mornings...'too many trains'....HA!

  anticipation at the station

  1. @awmooney I was complimenting you on ”The Sound” after my initial comment on the horns up the MacTier. Awesome about the sign!!

    @sdFourty Great shot! Sorry about the confusion. :)

  2. Brad: Sounds like you are complimenting me for
    “SDs” great shot. :o )My only claim in this pic is the sign facing the camera in this photo. It now is on my garage wall.

  3. Ha! ”The Sound”. Well done Mr Mooney!! And great pic as always.

  4. I looked in my notes to see where I was on this date. Was at Parry on Aug 4th, went north and returned to the Sound on the 17th. I certainly agree “The Sound” was a great place to be back then.

  5. The horns ringing off the rocks up the MacTier are so lovely! Very nice.
