The Spirit of Alberta...Locomotive 6060

I had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous machine om July 1 as part of the Canada Day celebrations in Stettler and Big Valley.

Pictures will be posted shortly.

In the meantime, check out the official page for 6060, complete with photos and sounds.

Here's the video I shot as she crossed through south of Fenn

    Those are beautiful photos of the train ride to Big Valley! That loco is a beaut - I just posted on my 'Regina' page some pics of one of CPR's biggest locomotives (old #3101 Northern-type).

    Why do we love trains so much? Since I met you last summer, I wondered how that pic turned out I saw on your camera .. the one w/ sparks flying about ;) As for your upcoming meeting? I'm terribly jealous!
