Default Who else saw this coming?

The orange borg continues its conquest with the acquisition of the west end of the DME courtesy of EHH. Was pretty clear to me that this part of the DME didnt fit EHH's plans for CP. Always wanted to visit this part of the DME and shoot some blue and golds but I guess I can remove this from my list. ETTS

Wonder if anyone outside of the 2 or 3 moose that live in the affected area will even notice?

You've got that right. Knowing the rate G&W repaints or replaces their engines on a newly acquired operation, it won't take long until the blue and gold SD40-2s are gone. Is there any information regarding the sale of locomotives associated with this transaction?

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
