Don't race the always ends bad!

I just had to post these photos of what happens when trying to beat the train to a grade crossing goes wrong. To the best of my knowledge it was a recent accident in the Brandon area when a load b-train was caught halfway over the crossing before being cut in two. I have no idea who captured the images but if you do please let me know........

Mile 31 on the Skeena Subdivision

While it's been awhile since I had a chance to get out and capture any trains with my camera, but I made 4 trips between Prince Rupert and Terrace this past weekend and took the camera along with me. I couldn't believe I only meet 1 train during 12 hours of driving the Skeena. Well after all that driving I managed to take the 2 following photos of CN 5782 (EMD SD75I) at mile post 31 heading East with a load of empty grain cars.
