Mark Zulkowsky, Saskatchewan Railways Facebook page
"Construction is well underway at the White Star terminal and the new track has been laid," says Mark on his Saskatchewan Railways Facebook page. "It appears they only need to clean the ballast and the track will be ready. Off at the elevator, CTRW GP10s switch a few grain cars before returning back to Prince Albert." Taken Oct 8, 2013.
Mark Zulkoskey started the "Saskatchewan Railways" Facebook page this year out of a pure love for trains. He describes it as "a page dedicated to conversing between railway fans, sharing photos and discussing train news in regards to the railways in Saskatchewan." If you want information on trains, railway or elevators in Saskatchewan, Mark and his Facebook friends will be able to help you. Great photography and interesting facts and information await. Follow the trains at http://www.facebook.com/saskatchewanrailways.

Saskatchewan Legislative Building by Robert Weitzel
This beautiful perspective on the Saskatchewan Legislative Building comes to us from Robert Weitzel on Twitter @sportsshooter_1.
Although this photograph is a beautiful landscape, Robert's actual business is to provide photos to individual athletes and their teams. You can hire him to capture yourself or your child/grandchild at the next great game! Robert says he provides athletes young and old, an opportunity to acquire a little piece of their own history. Find his sports photography work at http://www.sportsshooter.ca.
