Train Mountain 2003

2003 saw my second trip to Train Mountain, the major Train Mountain events take place every three years and not unexpectedly is called the Train Mountain Triennial. For this trip I decided to follow the ramble North into Canada and the Pacific North West. This took in Medford, Kitsap live Steamers, Vancouver Island and Vancouver tracks. For this selection I have chosen interesting snaps of most locations to give a flavor of what was on offer. Because it was three years ago plus now I don't remember who's who and what's what so sorry if the descriptions are a bit vague.

So onto the snaps.
