Matt Watson has been posting some pretty killer shots from the Keppel area lately, so figured I'd get in on the fun. It is a great area to railfan, with pretty steady action and no shortage of different vantages to try out. I was further west towards Biggar when this eastbound snuck up on me, so I hit the grid and the chase was on. I managed to finally reach that sweet spot in the chase where I was slightly ahead (read - seconds ahead) and saw an angle that looked interesting enough to shoot, so I jumped out of the rental and this was the result, with 196 rolling past recently harvested fields and a couple of combines resting in the foreground. This would be the second last train I would shoot on my summer trip to Saskatchewan.

  1. Good job, that road is always not the most chase friendly!

  2. Beautiful. Nice “combination”, heh heh. :-)
