CP Rail – Red Deer Sub

Filed under: Hand of Man, Industrial, Movement — collin j örthner @ 3:57 am

I waited a good half hour to catch this train which travels right beside the Queen Elizabeth II Highway (Hi-way 2) as it travels to the west of Red Deer. I had a one in two chance of getting it coming towards me and wouldn’t you know he came from the north instead!! The light was really nice just before the train showed up at sunset (second image), but unfortunately the sun had dipped just below the horizon as the train passed by during this long exposure, which blurred the train as it went by.
