Beautiful magnificent Canada. The place where it is hard to take a bad picture. I have only made a couple trips to Canada and I want to go back again. There are high rugged mountains, blue rivers, lots of trains and almost thirty years ago, Alcos on the British Columbia Railway. What more could a railfan want?

My first trip into Canada was in the early summer of 1979. I returned the following year, but was rained out for most of that trip. In 1981, I returned with my new bride on our honeymoon. Most of my best pictures are from that trip. Thanks Ruth.

Since then, I have made two other short trips into Canada. A jaunt across the plains in 1985 and a one day visit in 1987 when the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National were on strike. Fortunately, the BC Hydro was operating. I was hoping to return for our 25th wedding anniversary, but we lacked both the time and the money to get away. I have updating the pictures in this gallery and added more pages.

The following picture pages are arranged from East to West and then North to South. We begin on the Great Plains in southern Saskatchewan and finish on the West Coast near Squamish, BC. I am trying something new and placing several pictures on a single page, so some of these pages may be slow to open as some contain up to four pictures on a single page.
