A rainy day, such as was yesterday, often lessens the chance of a good photo opportunity. I was complaining of my reduced chances of finding something good to take pictures of when my husband uttered as we were driving along. "Here's your chance?"here comes a Train!" A Southern New Brunswick freight train was coming in our direction! And I love trains! Having grown up in a railroad town, trains have always fascinated me, and daily we can see and hear trains passing through our village from my house, ( although no longer are they passenger trains passing through.)and we still announce or comment on the passing of trains to each other. Yearly we travel to Ontario by VIA Rail to visit with my son and his family.We always look forward to and anticipate that trip, beginning in Moncton and traveling overnight to Montreal, then on to Toronto and at the end of the day arriving at London.
The rain really enhanced the lights on the train, definitely spreading the train magic.

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
