I was flipping back through some old photos the other day and came across this one taken in Havelock earlier this month. Sometimes it’s hard to see the trees through the forest and this shot fits that bill. At first I passed right by it and was going to delete it, however, after looking at it for a bit, I realized by cropping it slightly and doing some processing with the clouds and the colours, it might make for an interesting image.
One of the things I find interesting about trains is the number on the side of it stays with it for life. You can track the history of that engine and get photos and videos from trainspotters from all over. This particular engine CP 3114 mostly stays in the Peterborough area, but has worked all across North America. Here’s a link showing this train working in Alberta back in the late 90s. Notice the old school paint scheme which was only updated a couple years ago. Yes, I’m a train nerd too.
