Hitching a ride on CN 422, the Iron Ore Company of Canada's BMEX 520, is making the return trip from Brookville Equipment in Falls Creek Junction Pennsylvania after its repairs had been completed. The electric train was one of only 9 ever built. The fall colors and the nice clean paint make for a nice contrast to the dull skies overhead.

    A shot of it exactly 1 month later, this time showing the other side, traveling on the same CN 422. Neat.

  5. I will submit a photo of a similar locomotive I captured at the Iron Ore Company of Canada in Labrador City, NL in 2005. The photo is really rough and may not make it to the site. Fingers crossed.
