Between July 28th and August 20th, Canadian Pacific is running a special train between Port Moody, BC and Ottawa, ON to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. For power, they are using 4 Ex-CN F-Units (I think 3 are on, 1 is in tow for backup)! When they entered Winnipeg on August 4th, I caught them come in at a pedestrian crossing, then enjoyed the stuff going on at their stopping location. Enjoy!

130 years of the railway line Novara-Varallo Sesia. The steam locomotives have an undeniable charm and this video focuses on the details of the two steam locomotives, Gr.880 and Gr.635. Good vision!

On July 20th 2017, I went all over the St Boniface area of Winnipeg, on foot no less, looking for some different action from what I've been doing recently. I caught the CP local leaving the CN/CP Paddinton Interchange Yard on the Emerson Sub, then working at Brenntag, before returning to Winnipeg Yard. I also caught a CEMR train, and an over-under meet with CP and a CN train with a Blue Devil on it on the Redditt Sub. Enjoy!

On June 26th 2017, I went railfanning in Winnipeg. When passing Fort Rouge Yard, which is near my house, I saw CN 7268, 268, and 1405 working away, preparing to go to the Chevrier Industrial. I caught them by the switches for the industries, near PTI Manitoba, and CN 532 in between. Enjoy!

130 years of the railway line Novara-Varallo Sesia. An a funny moment, water supply error, steam games, movement of the steam loco and more. Good vision!
