A little more than a month after the events of 911, the historic Canaan, Connecticut Union Station was destroyed by fire.
Thankfully the classic structure has since been reconstructed and today it stands along the Housatonic Railroad line where the old Central New England route once crossed.
I made these photos last week on a visit to Canaan. Sometimes it helps to be in position at a sunrise and watch how the light changes as the sun climbs into the sky.
I featured the old Canaan Union Station in my book Railroad Stations published by MetroBooks in 1998.

Like the legendary Phoenix, Canaan Union Station has been reborn from its own ashes.
I photographed the original gothic revival station at Canaan, Connecticut in March 1997.
Sometime after I made my 1997 images, a terrible fire consumed much of the classic board and batten style building.
This morning (10 June 2016) I made these images at Canaan of the largely restored station.
