Interesting twenty seconds at Port Credit yesterday. What's Sperry's business here? Track conditions? Grinding?

Track testing - structure, ballast and rail conditions.

A couple of old relics on display in Cranbrook, British Columbia. I believe these are former CP Rail units.

The first two are ex-CPR FP9 1409 and F9B 1901 (via VIA). The others are ex-CPR FA2 4090 (with the bastardized nose) and FB2 4469.

A FY Moment:

Learning that my work has tracks built-in, and has active shipments by rail with a well-known CN yard behind our facility.

Yeah! Appears they've closed off the other two and put racks above the rail pits. My bunch will be moving closer to that entrance in the coming months. So hopefully, I'll be able to catch a delivery one of these days.. Do you guys just use a switcher or something else small to spot?

Probably a GP9+slug or GP9+GP9 set. The only thing that uses a ("their own") little switcher is the steel transfer facility.

I took this photo sometime around 2010. This is in Riverside County, California.

While taking a break at a rest area on Interstate 10 in New Mexico, I spotted this giant metal anaconda. I-10 parallels railroad tracks for quite a distance throughout the desert of New Mexico & Arizona. This was on the summer of 2010.

I did this one a few weeks ago. The commuter rail Metrolink (Southern California) is doing the San Bernardino Line (links southwest SB County, San Gabriel Valley, & Downtown L.A.).
