One of my most favourite shots! I know how lucky I have been to live my boyhood dream of being a locomotive engineer. I was blessed to have the biggest train layout to operate.
For me this shot captures the sights, sounds and smell of railroading at its best.
3021 departing Mac Yrd on the Halton outbound track while I follow an eastbound up to Jane St as it enters Mac Yrd on the Halton inbound . My train will wait for a better signal to enter the yard. I would hang up my throttle about a year after I took this shot. Not a day goes by that I don't miss being an engineer.

  1. Amazing capture! always great to see images from the hogger’s perspective!!

  2. I guess in your heart you will be an engineer for the rest of your life. It is amazing how many retired guys find out that the railroaders life, although tough, is everlasting.

  3. Thanks cp5756. Always willing to share this unique perspective.

    @AW..It is most definitely true. I will always be a locomotive engineer, even if I am not in that seat anymore.
