I was out and about on November 24th and stopped by the Pickering GO station to try and catch a westbound VIA which had left Oshawa about ten minutes before. When I arrived the sky was very pleasant, looking like this:
But the clouds thought they’d fool around with me, passing in front of the sun as the train approached, resulting in some much darker than expected shots. You can see the sliver of sun behind the last car, obscured by the completed but incomplete pedestrian bridge.
This was train 55 from Montreal, with VIA 6414 leading 4 LRC cars. Here are two shots, seconds apart, but I liked them both too much to not have both of them up.
Catching 6414 in action continues my streak of non-repeating lead units, dating back a number of posts and many months. One day this will end, but I’m going to ride it for as long as I can.
