So far for me, just 6400's...lots of modern-day 6400's. Especially the stock photo of the engineer climbing into the cab at Ottawa station. (Though none with yellow noses.)
Christie Blatchford's piece in today's National Post contrasts the lack of airline-type security at Toronto Union with the joy of train-riding, something that we all know and cherish as she does:
"Union Station is the antithesis of a modern airport, which is one reason among many to love it[Union]...remains a prisoner of the last century - early in the last century, when it was started and built. On the train, you can read, have a glass of wine and something to eat, or actually talk to your fellows. Not everyone is wired every second of the trip, and there's something comforting about the noises and the slight rocking of the train...Toronto's train station; Canada's trusting passenger: may they stay strong"
I'll also be cherishing and relishing that tomorrow on my way through the concourse, swiftly boarding the big steel beast to head east shortly thereafter!
