View from the Signal Tower at Montreal Central Station—Daily Post.

Twenty Nine Years Ago Today.

I made this view on Kodachrome 64 with my Leica 3A and Summitar lens.

On May 29, 1985, I was visiting Montreal, having arrived that morning on the overnight VIA Rail train from Toronto. The signalman/tower operator was friendly, and allowed me to spend several hours photographing trains from the tower.

This was before VIA rationalized its schedules, and there was a constant parade of trains coming and going. Here, I’ve used the tower door to frame an inbound LRC train.

I didn’t think much of the modern LRC trains at the time. But I’m glad I preserved them on film.
