"Well, that was the shot of the year!" I recall thinking to myself after taking this photo back in April.  It was early in the year to make such a prediction, but now that we've reached the end of 2021, I can safely say this was my favourite photo of 2021.  A great consist, in perfect light, at a favourite location.  You can't ask for much more.  There were surprisingly many out to photograph this train on a Tuesday.  The pandemic-delayed March break was moved to this week in April and I was on vacation, so the operation of this ballast train dumping ballast on the Hamilton Subdivision couldn't have been timed better for me.  Here's to a happier 2022!  Let's see your favourite photos of 2021.
