When I go out train watching, I like to make a full day of it. This day I got up at 5am, out the door for the 2 hour or so drive down to Crowsnest Pass area. Made it to this location where I caught this eastbound with Turtle mountain and Frank Slide as a nice backdrop. This was around 9am, thinking that wow this might be a good day. Train even had a BNSF pusher on the end. The next train that would come through did so at 6pm. Thankfully I am a very patient person. Made it home at 10:30pm, 3 trains the whole day. Still enjoyed my day down there.

  1. Great shot.

  2. Wonderful shot! I don’t think you could have chosen a better location to show off Turtle Mountain/Frank Slide.

  3. This is awesome! Deserves to be larger! Don’t forget we take up to 1280 pixels wide. :)

    Great work.

  4. Thanks! Did I not upload it that size? Hmm got new computer so maybe I messed up a setting.

  5. No sir, 1024 pixels.

  6. So many Western images, including THIS one, are, in a “star count” badly underappreciated.

  7. Thanks Arnold
