Blue Skies/ Orange Engine

Don't you think the orange Canadian National engine contrasts nicely with the almost pure blue sky?

This engine has between 100 and 150 cars behind it carrying freight from Western Canada (Prince Rupert, British Columbia on the Pacific Ocean) to Brampton (just northwest of Toronto). Some freight will be offloaded in Ontario but much of the cargo will head southward into the U.S., some of it all the way to New Orleans on the Gulf of Mexico. CN tracks also travel easterly in Canada to Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the Atlantic Ocean.

These are busy tracks, trainloads upon trainloads passing through East Gwillimbury every day.

I love your text for the photo. Yes, I love the orange/blue combo, I can feel the ground trembling as this rumbles over the road. I wish we had more (and better) rail service.

Great shot. Nice contrasts. :)

Interesting how monitors differ. On my Samsung the sky is a perfect blue color and the train engine is a brilliant red.

I like your selection for Sky Watch Friday. Nice work.
