Trainspotting: VIA Rail’s “the Ocean” Heads Out of Moncton, New Brunswick

The VIA Rail train “The Ocean” – from which i just disembarked – pulls out of Moncton, New Brunswick heading west towards Montréal, Quebec, Canada.

This train is Viarail’s The Ocean which goes between Montreal and Halifax… In this case, dumping me off in Moncton, New Brunswick (from Truro, Nova Scotia) last summer when I explored eastern/maritime Canada seeking a new home Unsuccessfully — I did find many find communities between Montréal’s mile end, Quebec City, Halifax’s north end, St. John’s Newfoundland, Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia… to name a few but turns out I’m #Pacific through and through. Note: met wonderful people in each place… So much more #friendly & open than #Vancouver indeed – also way way thriftier place to find a home and exist.

Swipe for multiple views of this fine (by 1960s standards anyway) conveyance.

Trainspotting: Train Rolling through Thrippunithura Station, Kerala

A classic train rolls through a rather insignificant (generally speaking as it is important to the community of course) train station called Tripunithura in the state of Kerala, India. That’s all. I do like trains. I made a painting of this station as well.

Watching Jets Landing and Miniature Trains Rolling

My pal The Unabonger visited a park in the landing path for nearby SeaTac airport. I captured the gleaming bellies of some planes. Later, with large tankards of ale, we watched miniature railroad run it’s course at a bar. This was maybe 2005/6.

Natural sound, no music, enjoy the slow roll.
