Fall Road Trip Part One

Uxbridge Station
Old Budd Rail Car

A few weeks ago I fell off the grid took the scenic route up to a lodge near Algonquin Park to meet up with friends for the weekend and take lots of pictures. I like driving through Durham Region as I have a strong family connection to the area. I took a route through Uxbridge because I wanted to photograph the York-Durham Heritage Railway's northern terminus and I have a weak spot for old trains. Been there last year but suffered light leaks in the camera gear I was using at the time, didn't suffer that problem this time around.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take pictures of their Alco Road Switcher  which was in operation in the yard, I have walked around on their day off but I kept my distance from the operating locomotive for safety reasons, there's always next time when I'm in the area to get a decent photo.

I drove through Uxbridge to get to Highway 12 or the Trans Canada Highway so I can get to Cannington for lunch. More about that next time.

Camera used: Nikon F3HP with a Nikkor Ais 50 f1.4
Film: Fuji Pro 400 H.
