Canadian machines

Canadians operate some impressive machines. I've posted photos of some already (sad I know). Juggernauts crossing Canada along the Trans-Canada Highway. Snow ploughs running in tandem, clearing both carriageways at once. Double-decker container trains, a kilometer long, running parallel to the highway along the Canadian Pacific Railway , two engines at the front and one at the back to power them over the Rocky Mountain passes.

Even the smaller machines impress. This one, parked in our parking lot, can travel by road AND by rail. Nick saw it running along the railway tracks earlier.
