Some really great photos Mike. I like the Aultville Station one, although that hand car is now safely stowed inside the station. Only 8km from my home. :)

What a nice way to remember dad.
As I rode trains during WWII, (still steam)
I enjoyed the fotos which seem so familiar.
But, the familiarity ends when I realize that
Kingston, Ont. (while a nice town) does have
some differences with the Kingston, NY that
was my destination. As I now regularly ride
Amtrak and VIA, I assume that the current
similarities probably were representative of
similarities in the '50s. A picture is still
worth a thousand words, so I'll turn off the
text so folks can view the fotos. Thanks, karl s.

My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father, Mike. I found out about it on Friday evening at FNG.

The photos are a great tribute to your Dad. His captions show that teaching is in your genes.

Mike, that was a beautiful tribute to your father. The pictures he took, along with the terrific descriptions and story lines were wonderful.

Thank you for sharing this with us and once again, I am sorry for your loss, but you were lucky to have him!


Mark
