An EMD kind of Monday Morning
Author: rrartist

After yesterday's snowfall, I wanted to get out again this morning and try to capture the frosty scenery. I started in Minnesota City MN with CP train #284, CP #6245/Soo #4435/CP# 6050/CP# 6048, what NICE way to start the day! I moved down to Homer MN for the next shot. Following #284 was CP train #270 with three nice EMDs leading. ICE #6432 was leading the charge this morning.

Waiting in the Homer Siding was CP #643 with yet another all EMD consist! CP #6241 leads the DME #6089-ICE #6210-SOO #6048. I caught up to #270 near Donehower as the train passed through the snow covered landscape and lastly in Dresbach MN. Ahhh, you have to like Winter!

Very nice photos and power. Must have been a bit nippy as I heard on the radio this morning the Twin Cities was only going to top out at 12 degrees today.

Super job with the photos! I was the engineer on #284 - CP 6245. Train was 14,000 tons; 8,000 ft; only working dynamics on the leader and very slick out because of the fresh snow. We only made it to La Crosse before we died on our hours.

Nice shots! It's good to have something to show for freezing your butt to get them. I see a couple candidates for Christmas cards there, too.

Those shots are all nice, but #1 & #5 are fantastic. Now go warm up...

How appropriate on shots 3,5 & 6 . . . ICE on the nose and a bit of snow on the hoods in a cold wintery scene . . . !
