Train Travel Children’s Book Photo

VIA Canadian through Burnaby, BC
Train Travel by DK Publishing. Not sure about a Vista dome though! On the Canadian, it’s a Park Car. “Do you like long trips?” Hell yeah!

Well, this is a first … a photo in a children’s book entitled Train Travel by DK Publishing. I shot this one back in 2008 in North Burnaby. VIA’s Canadian (Train #2) lead by locomotive 6403, an EMD F40PH-2. Painted in a livery celebrating the 50th anniversary of CBC Radio, which was already a few years past and putting on quite the smoke show. This used to be one of my favourite spots to shoot. On the way home from work, and on a bike route – it was easy shooting. See more of my train photos at All Canada Photos.
