  1. Nice. Well framed, making the best of your surroundings on a less than ideal day.

  2. Thank you.. believe it or not.. I shot it at Guelph Junction with the crowd (which included a CP Police officer), unhappy with my shot, I managed to beat it to Trafalgar Rd. I seem to recall it had to stop for some reason or another, it’s nearly impossible to beat a train eastward to this point..

    And they were calling for a fully sunny day, once the fog lifted, it was brilliant sunshine… sigh ;)

  3. I have shots of this (trying to track down the digital copy; luckily I printed it). I can’t believe it. You must have tipped me :)

  4. Kevin you were part of our IRC group back then bud.
