    Default Morning Train Trip

    On this morning's train trip to work there was a noticeable improvement in the class & demeanour of my fellow commuters.
    However I suspect this one didn't pay for their ticket.

    It would probably be the only passenger not talking on a mobile phone.

    And it would probably NOT be the only passenger pooping on the floor.

    I am use to seeing these short and nimble fellows in the subway stations but thus far never on the heavier rail commuter trains in the Toronto area. They always make the trip a bit of a challenge if they are not left alone. It must of scared this little fellow to have accidentally boarded the train.

    Maybe he was a little late heading north for the winter and decided this was an easier way of getting there?

    Mags, I have see them pecking about on other platforms in the early morning and walk onto trains before the doors close.
    I wonder if they tell each other about their experiences ?

    Then I hope he changed trains at Epping to catch a Northern Line train up northwards or else went to Sydney Airport.


    Yet another fellow traveler. This one is coming to work with me.

    A large crane was hanging about on the opposite platform this morning. It was probably used during the weekend to remove the old footbridge and its concrete supports.
