Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Masson, Quebec

Masson is between Gatineau and Thurso on the QGRY Lachute subdivision and is the site of a large rail using facility with two dedicated QGRY engines to service the area.

Masson, Quebec
October 14, 2010 Traveling from my new apartment in Gatineau along the QGRY to west in my first explorative journey in the area, I found two units parked at Masson and a switcher working in the yard at Thurso. I was expecting a train from Ste-Therese as well but it did not materialise and likely came shortly after my departure. The tracks in Gatineau proper along the QGRY Lachute sub have been ripped recently enough that some of the trucks involved are still kicking around. So much for any thoughts of running the O-train across the bridge into Gatineau (same alignment)!
