Sorry, there is no map for this photo. Photographer did not add GPS co-ordinates. Please add next time or ask for a correction to this photo.

  1. Can’t pass up a nice image of a cab unit on VIA. We did not realize how good we had it back then. :o )

  2. The perfect Diesel locomotive in Canadian service. Just the wrong color scheme.

  3. Another good Farkas photo at an iconic spot, this one with a clean nosed 6786 and looking very powerful indeed. Must have been a warm day what with the front end door open a bit in an attempt to keep the engine cab a bit cooler. It is interesting that the same scene exists today but with more foreground line side vegetation and more Gardiner traffic. Well, done, John

  4. Love this

  5. Classic locomotive, 3 or 4 tracks still classic jointed rail. Railroading’s best of times.
