UP 7238 leads the westbound AGBMI 21 as it works its way over Donner Pass.

QUOTED IMAGE

Did you have to eat anyone while you were waiting for the train? Nice shot.

I don't capture trains much at all, but this engine caught my eye. I always wonder what the engineer is doing...

I really don't shoot trains but I make an exception if the weather co operates when the CP Holiday Train passes through the area. I'm posting last years shot which was taken while standing on a frozen marsh & this years shot for about 100 meters further away but with a bit of ambient light for a better shutter speed.

Thank You. I had to wait 3 years after getting the idea to try to capture it crossing the bridge. I wouldn't have been able to see it those first 2 years thanks to blowing snow / white out conditions. When the time did come i had no idea how many cars would be lit up but I was able to find how wide the bridge was thanks to the internet.

These two images are easily the best images I have seen this year of the Christmas train. Very cool!

I don't know whether CP's contest is applicable for the US side of the tour but they have a photo contest that gives out 4 tickets to the winners in each category to ride from a local stop to the next one. If you didn't know about it it's worth investigating IF you have a lot of Facebook friends. They can vote every day so he / she who has the most friends probably wins.
