Here is the reason I like trains so much. This is the view from my bedroom window when I was 15 years old! As you can see, my room was the perfect distance back from CN's mainline so that an SD40-2 would take up the entire field of view! Every time a train went by, I would look out the window, and if I had a camera close by, I would take a picture of it, even in the middle of the night, I would wake up enough to take a look at it. Here are some more from right outside our back yard. And not just CN! And some really old stuff too! And at that time, they still used a caboose! Mike.
