Today I photographed 10 grain elevators I had not seen before. It was a lot of driving! Here's a selfie with my favourite, the former Paterson elevator in Kane, Manitoba.

I'm surprised I've never shared this photo before. This was one of my favourite "lashups" ever, with a CN, Illinois Central, and Wisconsin Central engine together. This was February 2010.

There was a video too: Great Consist on CN 312 at Diamond 2010/02/15

This is the train bridge just on the north edge of Eureka, California. The rail line is defunct so the bridge is sitting idle, clearly tempting the graffiti artists. #bridgesovertuesday

One of many grain elevator posts to come this summer, I hope!
I am embarking on a project to photograph as many Manitoba grain elevators as I can this year. So far I have photographed a bit less than 40 elevators but there are a bit over 100 that I have not seen yet. I've created a page...

Coming Or Going?

It's hard to tell sometimes... but this one is going. The extinguished headlights are the giveaway. If you look really closely above the windshield you'll see two lit red lights that indicate the end of the train. This train was pushing on the rear of a very long container train that had an engine on the head end (with people!), an unmanned engine in the middle and this unmanned engine on the rear.

Canada has not used class lights in many years. They are still present on some older locomotives but they are not used. These red lights are on these new locos specifically so they can run DPU on the end of a train and provide marker lights. I suspect they stopped here at pretty much the same time as the US did.

This was my best image of the #bloodmoon  from last night's #lunareclipse. I don't have a telescope, so you do what you can with what you have. :)

better than we even got to see, it was too cloudy and rainy at our house.  And too late to stay up, we're old people who go to bed early.
