    Here are a few pictures from my last trip on the Laggan sub, hope you enjoy them.

    The lower Spiral Tunnel.

    The inside of SD90 #9116.

    Just going into the lower tunnel.

    And crossing our own train.

    Just entering Yoho.


    Kato's SD90 #9125!

    CP SD90 #9123, UP SD60, and a CEFX AC4400.

    The Rocky Mountain Rail passenger train.


    That is a black bear way down the track!


    This is one of the road numbers on the new AC4400's that Kato is producing!

    Fantastic photos Mike. Looks like you sure found the right job. Drive the real things at work then go home and do it again on your layout. Now that's livi'n

    Love that section between Lake Louise and Field BC! It's my favourite spot in all of Canada for watching the trains. When I get a trip to Calgary, I usually head up to Field on the Friday afternoon and book into the Kicking Horse Lodge in Field. From there on, it's pick a spot between Lake Louise and Field and wait for the trains to come.

    Some day, I'm going to try and get a ride in the cab!

    Those are really beautiful shots, Mike.
