    Fantastic photo Buddy! That's a framer! I had to do a double check as it almost looked like a painting.

    Could be. All I know is that it was made up of grain hoppers. There is really no such thing as a canola plant. The seed is basically from a modified rapeseed plant that can be pressed to extract oil, called Canola which is short for CANadian Oil Low Acid. There is a lot of controversy about canola oil and its supposed health benefits. But I digress..............

    The sun glow on that Soo car is great. I almost feel warmth from it.

    Neat photo Russell! I find myself anticipating a blast of air in the vestibule and the roar of passing motors. My wife and I have no lengthy "bucket list", but we would like to someday enjoy a ride through the Canadian Rockies on the VIA's Canadian or perhaps one of the privately operated luxury trains on the CP.

    In the early 1970s my Dad, Mom and I traveled to Vancouver to ride CP's Canadian all the way to Montreal …… and the Canadian railroad unions struck. :( We made the best of it though, instead traveling by car and air.

    As a young teen, I was especially proud of this capture of two CN geeps using my Kodak Instamatic. :LOL:
