What's it with that GBRf locomotive, Louis ?

Class 66 Diesel locomotive, noisy and dirty but OMG when one passes it makes your rib cage resonate with the sheer power of the unit. All built in London, Ontario, Canada according to Wiki although many of the Class 66s have been bought and sold to/from continental railway companies. To paraphrase, they take a lickin' and keep on tickin' which I guess makes them popular with rail operators.

I was actually incredibly impressed that on C-AF with continuous drive the 50R actually delivered some decent results, with of course an unreal level of detail compared to what I normally shoot with which is my Ricoh GRIII - because I can push it through the bars of security fences to take photographs of trains (unlike the 50R!).

I hope that wasn't 'too much information.' :)
