CP main line east of Lake Louise. Location named after famous Canadian Pacific house photographer Nicholas Morants who took many publicity shots of trains there including the Canadian back in the day. The location is probably one of if not the most famous railway location in North American.  Trees certainly have grown up obscuring part of the curve in recent years. Someone needs to do some gardening.

Outstanding image!  I can not believe how much the foreground has changed in just a few years.

This is Via #2 a week before it stopped running on CP rails through Calgary.

Via - And before the trees, looks like ferrying some extra  cars?   I am not a big book buyer, but have both of Morant's books.
Both interesting and some tragic elements.

In this case, given the historic significance of the train pictures made here, and the incredible vista this offers, that the trees haven't been removed to keep the view of the tracks clear.

It's a national park. Ain't gonna happen.

A lot less interesting without the snow.  This shot from July 2019.

The contractor that replaced the box culvert and retaining wall in the fall-winter-spring of 2017-18 could have removed the trees easily and cheaply. Parks prohibited it.

I think I used the Pentax 6x7, and just let the video roll on this one. Had to have this spot for the cover shot!!!

I like shots of this at different times of the year, snow, clouds, bright sun etc.

A few years back a photo charter I participated in photographed CP #2816
at that curve as well as other spots along this route.  Definitely a great place
to watch steam operate.

Very nice. I also enjoyed the reverse photos. Never knew what was behind the photographer's back.

I guess maintenance of the pole line had kept the trees at bay for almost a century.

They finally removed the pole lines, only to be replaced with trees! Almost as bad as the UP Keddie Wye in the Feather River Canyon. In five years you’ll be really pressed just to see the tracks.

Great post, interesting to see how Morant's Curve and also the Spiral Tunnels have fared over the years.

Morant's book is a keeper, no question. Very surprising used price:
