When's the next train?

OK, you all know I love trains, rail lines... pretty much anything to do with railways in general. My friend Utah and I went walking in Edworthy Park yesterday.


The CPR tracks run east/west along the south end of the park, and as we walked the Douglas Fir Trail, we came to an opening that exposed the railway.



Honestly, I'm not in the habit of tying girls to train tracks... this one volunteered all on her own!




It was a beautiful evening for photos all around... this one of Calgary's downtown core demonstrates why so many people were upset at the height of the Petro Canada Buiding; what's Calgary's skyscape without the Calgary Tower?




Last week a complete stranger told me I had a genuinely good aura about me. Looking at this photo, I tend to agree.

Hi Dave,

Nice photos, but if you keep tying down damsels to trains tracks your going to have to grow a mustash and dye your hair dark then come up with dasterly plains.

That one pic reminds me of the Perils of Pauline.

I like trains too. Of course I go back to the days of the steam engine and the luxury passenger trains.

Looking good in that last pic.
