Nice shot Pam, like the angle.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Nice shot Pam. When we were there it had a snow plough fitted on the front.

North American engines certainly look very different from the British ones,

And can you imagine what a white painted one would look like here?!  :))

We went on the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver to Jasper in 2006.  Then on to Banff where the driver of this one invited us to look around the cab.



He had time on his hands as he was waiting for one coming the other way

That's a beast and a half Pam. Low shooting angle adds impact to the shot.  :)
I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
