Canadian Pacific #9757 is a GE AC4400CW which was built in July 2003. The photo was taken at the Edgebrook Metra station in Chicago, Illinois.

I used a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera to take the photo. Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I started with the Bloody Mary action to convert everything but the reds to monochrome. Then I adjusted the lighting, sharpened the image, added the Dehaze filter and reduced the noise. Lastly I adjusted the curves and increased the saturation and brightness in the reds over the setting used in the action.

  1. Great picture of a CN rail train! Hourray as I am a proud Canadian! Even though they have a bad reputation lately, I think trains and buses are the best way to travel compared to cars and planes. Here we are in the same predicament as the US as our infrastructure cannot afford and have high speed rails such as the ones in Japan (which can and have withstood earthquakes). Very nice editing with all that flashy red just like our flag. Thank you for posting this.

    • We get a lot of Canadian Northern and Canadian Pacific trains down here.

      I like trains more than cars and airplanes also although, despite the Green New Deal recently proposed by the Democrats, they are not very practical when it comes to connecting Hawaii with the rest of the country. 🙂

      My daughter went to visit a friend in Japan and had a chance to ride the bullet train there. She loved it.
