Thanks for the comments guys!

It was a nice day. I was driving back from Canmore to Calgary and spotted this parked train. I just had to stop and photograph it. I have some panoramas of the train which give you a better perspective of its length, but I decided they look to small in dpc so went for this photo instead.

I might have liked this better from a lower angle tilted up or closer in and titled down, this just doesn't have enough power. The train helps to create a sense of depth but it's not very dynamic. Still a nice picture.
