This ex-BAR, nee-ATSF switcher rests silent in Saint-Hyacinthe. From what I've heard, it broke down some time last week and the MMA will soon be sending in a replacement. I wonder if they will repair it... It was built in August 1952, which makes it more that 60 years old!

Number 23 is a GP7u. She had her short hood chopped by the ATSF at some point. The MMA has 2 more, but I am not sure 1) where they are and 2) in what state. Perhaps they'll fix the 23 with spare parts from the other two...

The Montreal, Maine and Atlantic is a shortline that operates a former Canadian Pacific mainline between Montréal (Delson) and Brownville Junction, Maine, as well as some branchlines in both Quebec and Maine.

Thank you, Mathieu! Wasn't familiar with the Montreal, Maine, and Atlantic RR! That's a nice portrait of her!

Page 8 in the "show us your railway photos....3" is loaded with many fantastic photos, some great winter shots, I wanted to comment on JJAlphas nice photos of the "Baureihe 141".

Baureihe 141

I rode trains through Darmstadt everyday on my way to work in Langen -- usually pulled by 141s, sometimes 140s I think. The versions pulling the Schnellzug from Heidelberg was sometimes painted blue, rather than green. I had to change trains to a local in Darmstadt. Brings back lots of memories. They usually pulled the "Silberlings" shown in your second photo. I actually almost flew to Germany with my wife in May, and the DampfFest in Kranichstien was on the agenda, but something came up and I wasn't able to travel.

Regards,

Kelly

I got a chance to practice my panning. Thant's motion blur in the ballast.

And my two favorites from this set. We were on a bridge (Pavement Road) over the tracks, and the light was fading fast

@borjomi - I like that a lot. The worker adds just the right touch of dynamism. I wonder, though, if the photo is leaning a bit to the left, or perhaps it is a bit of perspective distortion.

Here is the start of my next set. Let's see if I'm making any progress.
June 5, 2010:
