Thanks Mikhail, I thought the livery looked almost identical, right down to the "0 Injuries" decal!

A curious looking livery on the lead unit - that wouldn't happen to be a company owned by "Genesee & Wyoming" (from the USA) would it? Great shot!

Roel - The trains that run to the north west mines are typically rakes of 72 wagons, either the 120t (gross) type seen above (with modern AC traction and ECP braking), or older 100t (gross) wagons with older DC traction and normal air brakes. Here's a shot of the same train a day earlier, which shows the whole train:

It takes something like 20 hours for a full round trip between the mine and the unloader, including loading/unloading time. Monster trains they are!

I did have a more zoomed out version, but it just didn't look right.

Hi Dheeraj, I use the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L lens, it's a heavy bugger, but it gets the job done!
