Sailing Through the Mountains
Author: cp1400

Last week freshly scrubbed CP SD70ACU military tribute unit 7022 was on the point of train 113 from Montreal to Vancouver (Coquitlam). I caught up to it in the Rocky Mountains on November 15, 2020. Painted as a tribute to the Royal Canadian and US Navy in “Shipside Grey” with a black “Boot Top” stripe and Oxide Red underframe it presented a striking appearance against the fresh early winter snow in the Canadian Rockies.
 
1. Approaching Canmore Alberta on the Laggan Sub
 
2. West of Canmore skirting the imposing Three Sisters
 
3. Iconic shot passing Banff Station.

Hope you were able to stop in Field or Golden on the way home to warm your toes of all that snow! Excellent chase and thank you. Some of us Montanans would like to do that sometime, but alas, covid.

Superb shots. May/June 2017 when we last got to this area from UK. Just hoping we can make it back next year if we are allowed to travel (and it's safe)

The "oxide red" is supposed to represent the red Anti-fouling paint used on ships.

Outstanding series in every respect
And congratulations on a well-deserved IOTD!  In a group as good as this one, there were a bunch of candidates. Todd has his work cut out for him picking the one that got the recognition.
