Just enjoyed Robert Farkas' latest offering in which he comments on trying to keep people out of locomotive photos for the most part.  Those in front of the subject tend to bother me as well, but sometimes people can tell a story, as in the case of his posting.
I always enjoyed this image; taken a long time back as well.  Those F units on VIA could be pretty darn loud, as this shot testifies.
Now...at the site of the long gone Dundas station, it is the silence that is deafening.

  1. They certainly do tell a story here. Nice image.

  2. When looking at this shot I recalled how loud those units were when stopped at a station. You could barely talk over them.

  3. Jointed rail everywhere back then probably didn’t help things when trains were rolling by!
