The Local by DDL-Photography The Local by DDL-Photography

On a warm fall day, the Canadian Pacific local is about to split the signals at Newport, MN on it's way to the next switching job.

This train can been seen in the Full HD video on my channel at YouTube [link]

Locomotives on the train are:

Canadian Pacific 4509 GP38-2 (Ex-Soo Line)

CEFX 3805 GP38-3 (Ex-Baltimore & Ohio GP38)

This is a great shot of the local and is that a caboose I see at the back of the train? Glad to see one's still being used. :)

Thank you very much John!

Yeah, I always capture the whole train for those like you that don't live here in the U.S. and for those modeling buffs who like to see what a whole prototype train is made up of. I figure that the rest can skip ahead to the next train if it gets too boring.

Hopefully (Weather permitting) I can get out next week and see what's polishing the rails.

Thanks again mate!

Darin

Thank you very much mate!

Having support like this makes standing on a pedestrian bridge above the tracks for 4 hours, 80 degree's, no breeze, and no shade worth all of it!! It's a good thing I carry sunscreen on by photo backpack all the time!

All the best,

Darin

Thanks mate!

Well...I wouldn't really say sacrifices as it was just hot and boring between trains. I just kept thinking though how exciting it will be to show you since you don't get to see much U.S. train action!
