Typical Vancouver day! Lots of liquid sunshine! I had just heard that VIA Rail was selling little piggy banks and I wanted one so I braved Vancouver's slug like traffic, parked, walked across some wet grass and purchased one. After the big buy I walked out to the rear of the station & took the attached photograph which shows that VIA Rail train was still being heated by steam. As for the piggy bank I still have it along with it's original box. Some day one of my kids will open it and get rich. Of course I have no idea what 11 cents will be worth in the future.
