I was a bit generous on the age, looks like a 1887 vintage…

Almost a postcard or a Christmas card, Paul. Very nice.

Just a little bit! Actually looks like Civil War/Golden Spike Vintage but was built in 1886 by/for the Canadian Pacific RR and pulled the first transcontinental train into Vancouver, according to information that I read online.

Beautiful photo! Like the wide angle perspective. Which lens did you use?

Glad you liked it. That engine is probably the most famous one in Canada.

Westcoast,

sigma 10-20 does produce some impressive images.
