I've always been interested in capturing something showing how trains get so close to this house by the tracks at Yorkshire Ave. This is the first photo that I actually like after many attempts over the last decade. While the train looks like it's coming toward me, and i'd be standing too close to it if so, it's actually reversing, allowing me a shot that I would otherwise never attempt. L542 had pulled ahead beyond Glasgow St for headroom as they would shove a very (for them) long train of about 25 cars around the wye to get into XV yard and begin working the Guelph area. I still wonder if this house will end up being expropriated by Metrolinx.
