    BNSF was pulling storage cars off the jointed rail and weedy Grenora Sub the last several days. I bagged a series of shots yesterday, and here's some.

    Wassaic, ND 6 miles north of Stanley.

    Lostwood, ND, milepost 11.

    Lostwood Trestle, milepost 8.

    Lostwood Hill, milepost 13. This one definitely looks like the Milwaukee Road in 1979...

    You guys are getting earlier and earlier... must be some kind of plot...:cautious:

    Plot or not, here's the former (and huge!) CNR (ex-GTR) Point St-Charles shops in the background of the Alstom shops in the new building. That one is now in the hands of Exo, the regional commuter transportation agency (ex-ARTM, ex-RTM, ex-AMT... changed names three times in a couple of years...:confused: ):

    Lots of interesting train action in the area.:)

    In the far background, the old Champlain Bridge spanning the Saint Lawrence river, replaced now by a new Champlain Bridge that's supposed to last at least 100 years...

    The Victoria Bridge, off frame to the left, was built in 1859 as a single-track covered railway bridge, and rebuilt around the turn of the 20th century, and still standing as a double-track cantilever bridge, with roadways on either side supported by outriggers that used to carry the temporary construction tracks for taking men and materials to the work site during the rebuild.

    I posted this shot earlier in the Random Railfan Photos but reworked it a bit in Photoshop to get rid of the bugs on the windshield. Crossing the Missouri River.

    Thanks for jumpstarting this weekly thread on a Friday Hemi. (y) From last Saturday (09/25/21), NS Train 15R works through the reverse curves at Ridgeway, SC. Nice to see a long manifest train in this era.

    Nice little guy! :)

    Wow!(y)

    If you could turn that little trick into a spray-on format, or an additive to windshield washer fluid, you could make a killing selling it to motorists.:D

    Almost fifteen years ago, I caught this one at UP's Argo Yard (Seattle). A bit of sideswipe damage on her cab:

    About a month ago, a fresh engineer boards Amtrak 184, a 40th Anniversary unit. The locomotive is leading #8 eastbound. We're in Whitefish, MT DSC08851.JPG

    When was this picture taken? Is the equipment in a museum?
