"Banff got an early gift of snow yesterday. This is the period when summer ends and Indian Summer is late arriving. I went for a walk and was surprised to see this 50's /60's era train down at the station . Looking a lot like a "Lionel" set that my brother and I had down in the basement ... on a ping pong table. CP must use this train for vip/ corporate executive events. "They're probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars". Anyway, it's not a truck but anything old, with a diesel engine and wheels looks good to me. I'd love to have a meal on the dining car, with the mountains rolling past the window. Cheers Alex
ps these engines were a lot like our new hybrid cars , where a diesel engine generates the electricity that turns the wheels
