    Unfortunately, my timing was off, and I missed it at the crossing near my home (too far to travel to one of the scheduled stops...).

    So, if anyone has pictures, could you please share?

    Thanks! :)

    I found out last might that it was about 2 hours late for Smiths Falls, which would have meant 11 - 11:30pm! Too bad... although Chris, you probably could have seen it in the morning instead!!

    We'll try again next year... Thanks guys.

    I forgot which day it was to be in Whitby, and my wife felt that seeing the other train in daylight in Streetsville would not be as good as last year in the dark.
    Chris: did any of your CPR friends see it? Did the 2 trains meet somehwere?

    What time does it come to Calgary? Edmonton? If I can get off work I'll be able to take some good pic.

    No, It won't work for me:(

    Even If I drive to Banff after work, I'll still miss it by about 30 minutes.

    Unless I get the flu between now and than;) Just kidding! :D :D
