Canada (Calgary/Banff) - April 2024
Author: johnusnsd

Was in Canada for work - for ~12 days - and weather was not favorable for most of the visit - during my limited time-off - however as I always do, I "find" time to shoot.

1.  CP 9357, WB at Canmore on 02-Apr-2024 at sunset.
2.  CN 3144, NB at Crossfield on 06 Apr 2024.
3.  A little out-of-sequence - but trying to group my photos as best as I can - so here is CP 8056, WB at Field (crew change) on 08-Apr-2024.

4-6.  The trees obstruct any shot of a WB - and unfortunately I was skunked at sunrise for a EB - but Morant's Curve does not disappoint.    CP 9783, WB at Morant's Curve on 08-Apr-2024 at sunrise.

And, some straggler images of Canada.   Surprised me a bit with a storm cell one day - and the scenery though is just amazing!

Unfortunately I was skunked during the storms - as the winds exceeded 65kn and I am pretty certain everything was being held until the front passed - but it would have been an amazing catch had there been a trainset - as the clouds just changing.
Animal sign was funny (to me) - that pretty much any large animal is in the area.
And Dead Mans Flat - again would be amazing with a train - but still beautiful.

Thank you all for the kind comments - - I will be back up in Canada in May - spending a couple of days in Fraser Canyon.....and will post the pics in the "Canadian" folder - vice International (I just noticed the Canadian folder....lol).

Appreciate the correction on Morant's curve (not Morton's....lol) - - I had the name right-in-front-of-me and still typed it incorrectly.

And, thank you TO for selecting one of my images as IOTD.

John

Is picture 13 with all the flat bare ground an old original Canadian Pacific railroad town that was a water and coal stop as well?

That is Field, B.C., a CP division point between the Laggan Subdivision that starts in Calgary, Alberta, and the Mountain Subdivision that ends in Revelstoke, B.C.
