saw this canmore/banff on wednesday. Guessing on the way to Vancouver. It had about 10 passenger cars and a couple diesel/electric ? to help through the mountains. It was moving down the tracks at about 50 to 60 mph. I followed in a while. I don't remember seeing a train like this moving at speed. Usually just a tourist attractions where they just putt around.
I found it pretty darned exciting to watch and hear a steam train on the tracks.
Here's a couple of mediocre shots. There was really bad light. (that's the pro's excuse right:lol: )
There's a couple more in my flicrk stream link below

Forget the lighting. It's cool just to be there. Nice shots.

A lot of bucks went into restoring that beast. Shame about the light, but you have to work with what you have available. These look pretty good considering.
