Westbound GOT 308 begins to lean into the curve around the platform at Bronte station. I didn’t notice until post-processing but the conductor gave me a friendly wave, a little different than the perplexed look I usually get from most GO crews while taking photos. One thing to note, in the bottom left you can see the scorched wild grass. In the previous week or two (or more, can’t remember specifically) the regular Oakville-Aldershot (CN 5 something, something) turn passed by the vacant field while throttling up, throwing sparks to the wind igniting the extremely dry grass (this was during heat wave). It was a pretty intense fire and went right up to the edge of the GO parking lot, and most likely would’ve damaged cars had the fire department not been there.
