Gord was a CN engineer, photographer, model railroader, model train dealer, and the brains behind cnrphotos.com. He regularly kept us all up to date with the goings on inside the real railroad industry and the railfan and modelling communities in western Canada. He was also a member for the Selkirk Model Railroaders Association.
Gord, like his Dad, loved trains and was an avid railroader. In his early years Gord worked briefly as an automotive mechanic and a tow truck operator. He then followed his Dad’s footsteps and joined CN, where he worked for 33 years starting as a yard foreman, then as a conductor and finally as a locomotive engineer.
