Canadian Pacific Railway CP 8856

Canadian Pacific Railway CP 8856 Powering through Early Snow. From an excellent photo by Canadian photographer Jim Winsor. (Photo used with Jim's very kind permission.) The photo was taken in October 2011 and Jim writes: "This was so far the most significant snowfall we have had yet this year. I braved the elements today to capture this rare for me image of such a beauty. I arrived at this location and it was dull and overcast which soon gave way to a lite blowing snowfall. This beauty could be heard off in the distance and low and behold, out of the blowing snow she came."
