Pics From the Yard

Looking toward the Lions Gate Bridge From the Capilano Bridge This is the north end of the Yard.
I have worked in this yard since 1986 and on the BCRail since 1980 in train service.

We sure live in a Beautiful City

Looking east from under the Lions Gate Bridge
That is our engine down the lead.

May 24,09 Rest

Miss you Buddy you would have loved this race hope to see you in august

I am resting today, That was a pretty challenging course yesterday. My heart rate was avg 147, hi 171, for 3.07 hours not bad for this oldfartt, the pro's did it in just under 2 hours. I had to pass on watching the downhill race today Steve McCabe and Pikey are up there right now I have to go to work at 3:30 so I'll see the pics later we'll post a few I'm sure. We know quite a few people racing so I'm sure Steve will get some quality shots with his new Nikon D-700.

Ride 050921 XC In The Morning Freeride In the Evening

Yesterday Steve McCabe and I rode to Lost Lake about 9k out. We left about 10:30and meant to go for about 2.5 hours as I had to Install my front fork on my big bike before our regular Thursday evening ride, we got back at 2:30. After a quick hose to the bike and self I managed to get to the Cove Shop to Install my Totem. It sure is nice working for the Cove and having the shop there to use when you need it, not to mention the highly skilled mechanical staff.

This is Steve pinning it out of the Lost lake road

This is lost Lake

Nice lake EH

Can you find the salamander
