176 Containers of Crap Winnipeg Bound

Yes, I counted them so you don’t have to. I was on the trail of capturing some footage of the Prairie Dog Central one morning last September and caught this fast freight hauling tons of precious crap to the dollar stores of Winnipeg. Click pic make train move.

Up close and personal with a CNR Fast Freight as it speeds eastward toward Winnipeg, Canada on a warm October afternoon. Note the arty arm weight. I’ll try not to do that again. Enjoy! Chug chug, play it loud!

It was an unusually warm October afternoon when I captured this eastbound fast freight on CNR mainline just south of Headingley, MB. The crossing arm creates a new horizon across which the train flies. Great rhythms. Play it loud!

Another Westbound Fast Freight

Hightailing it westward out of Winnipeg with a full load, heavy steel on steel, this CNR fast freight howls, roars and churns toward the vanishing point.

The drama, the diesel and the dust! A few Sundays back I grabbed this CNR fast freight heading east into Winnipeg. Its rhythms are hypnotic. Meet you at the crossing.
