Here's a couple of pictures of Washington, DC. In the first picture, two Washington Metro trains are crossing the Potomac River. The second picture features a Norfolk Southern office train with the United States Capitol building in the background.

I don't know what the steel work is for exactly. It looks like a bridge is being built.

Here's a picture of a Canadian Pacific train in Ashcroft, British Columbia, Canada. The train is hauling coal into Black Canyon which is along the Thompson River. Ashcroft is about 200 miles(320 kilometers) northeast of Vancouver via Trans-Canada Highway 1(TCH-1).
