A train ride with Kira (and her mom Isa) and Sylas (and his dad Kirk)

For the local system we decided on "Playmobil 123" over Brio, Wood Town, Leggo, and Thomas the Tank Engine products.

While visiting a friend in Vancouver, a train appears on the freight siding below the balcony. We went down for a close look and some pictures.

We think it's an EMD SW-1500, but anyone who can provide a positive ID is encouraged to correct us.

The crew invited us to tour the cab. Look carefully to see who is in the engineer's seat!

Rocky checks out the view.
