The Grandeur of it All
Spending time in Banff Park after leaving home very early on this morning, it was a given that I would be watching for trains passing through the park.
Stopping at Morantz Curve on the Laggan sub, I climbed up the slope to the north side of the road not expecting any trains for a while, I found a comfortable spot too lay back and admire the view.
When an eastbound train made its presence known by the sounds it was generating as it rumbled in to view surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies, I shot this photo so that the train shows its true scale in the grandeur of it all.
