Skytrain in Vancouver

In addition to the typical bus, Skystrain is another major public transportation system for Vanouverites. It is much better than Subway because you have nice view of snow-capped moutains, sanddy beaches and the ocean while travelling by train. To give you a clear idea about Skytrain in Vancouver, I posted another picture - a postcard printed in the 1980s.

I have two brothers living in Vancouver and I've visited there twice but never been on their Skytrain!! I can imagine how rare it would be to find it empty!! Great pictures for this weeks' theme:-)

Well let's hope that Vancouver doesn't become like New York where everybody is shoulder to shoulder and crouded not "empty".
Great shot

I rode commuter trains for almost thirty years and I have great appreciation for them. This is a beautiful photo.

They saved me from having to drive my car into work each day. Nice idea for today's theme.

Mine is up too.

Happy weekend, dear Sunflower!
