Repetition - Friday My Town Shoot Out

The theme for this week's shoot out is "repetition" and I found it only a few minutes walk from our house.  We live near the Via Rail train station here in Woodstock and these 3 box cars are permanently parked across the tracks from the station.  The murals were painted several years ago by a high school art class.

 A wide shot of the repetition
 The first car depicts the early days of rail travel in Oxford county.
 The second depicts a current-day Via Rail passenger rail car
And the third is an imagining of travel of the future

I really enjoy train travel and I'm looking forward to a trip to Toronto next week with The Writer to see the Frida and Diego exhibit at the AGO.

For more fun with the FSO gang, visit here.

  4. Great take on the topic, Elaine. And a unique way to brighten the landscape at the station. I love trains, too, the repetitive noise is part of their appeal.

  7. What a great project for those young artists and a nifty way to save those old rail cars from going to rust.
