here is a great one...taken yesterday Aug. 17

 
 
What the heck is that big white column in the background--the CN Tower?  No wait, that's a UP loco.  That puts it in the Midwest somewhere.  Ah, I've been there!  The St. Louis Arch, looking towards the northeast?  I have a photo of a blimp framed by it.

This is my favorite: may be not for the country side around the tracks, but because of the lucky moment!
In this place (Biaschina, Gotthard pass, Switzerland, Europe) the RR line make two helix to gain haltitude (haltitude is written with "H" ?) so you can see the same rails for three times on the same hill.....something similar to Tehachapi!
But in this case there were one train uphill and two downhill....and in the right moment they are all visible togehter;D !!!!
This picture is not so good in quality bacause is from a video....but better than nothing! (You should see the video....1000 times better)
CIAO.

I've never seen anything like that one  before.  Does it only pull passenger trains?

Yes, that style of VIA engine only pulls passenger trains. Those cars are specific to the Ontario corridor, aren't they? Out east, we've only got the very normal-looking cross-country coaches.

Oh hey, ICE...what is that big green train 2nd from the left in your signature? Whne I was in Ottawa, rambling round to different parts of town, I ended up in the town of Fallowfield to the south of the city...and I saw that train pull into the Fallowfield station. I'd never seen it before...is it a new train or does it just serve a certain line or what?

Hey guys,
 
The photograph I showed up there is of a VIA Rail EMD F40PH pulling LRC cars from Montreal to Ottawa. I believe those cars are used only in Ontario and Quebec, along with the new Renaissance Cars.
 
The locomotive in my signature is a VIA Rail GE P42DC. It's not exactly brand new, but definitely the newest of all VIA locomotives.
 
To see more pictures of both types of locomotives go here:

Nice to see some interest

This is one of my favorite photos.  Taken at Altoona, PA last October, two sets up helpers coupled together right in front of us.  Was planning to just watch the trains that night, but had this photo opportunity and could not pass it up!

Is that the state capitol dome in the background?  It's a nice touch.  There was an old song called, "The Freight Train Wreck at Altoona," that was recorded by one of the earliest "country" singers, Vernon Dalhart, in 1925 I think.  I've been trying to get a copy to listen to.

The capital of Pennsylvania is Harrisburg, I'm pretty sure.

Yeah, I think it is!  LOL.  I've never been to Pennsylvania.  Building does look a bit small now that I've looked again.  My guess is it's a county courthouse.  Most of thsoe got pretty ornate!

Kent--- Your confusion is understandable--- The dome on the building in the Altoona picture and the dome on the Penna. State Capitol building in Harrisburg have a very similar appearance, though the State Capitol dome is larger.

This one's for NathBDP: I'm dying to know where you took that astonishing shot on page 2 (with the bridges). It's one of the best pictures I've ever seen. Looks like digital? What info can you give me on the setup?
Thanks in advance! And I'm not just patronizing - that's a truly incredible picture

That is an awesome pic.  That is the CSX River Sub, on the Hudson River's west side.  The train has just passed under the Bear Mountain Bridge, and is crossing over the Pentolopen (spell?) bridge, heading north to Selkirk.  The area offers many good photo opportunities, including Iona Island.  The pic was probably taken from Rt 9w.
