Interesting for a few reasons.

KG taking a photo of a passenger train (Local inside joke)

I wonder where the cities are on the wrapped car?  All others and locomotive have cities included.

Hmmm.

Most of the coaches I have seen have four cities or towns listed, but I have seen some in the past week that have none.

This sure looks like Alta Vista station in Ottawa. If so, did you just stroll out to take the shot, and not get hassled, or were you riding and therefore entitled to be on the platform? Just curious.

I arrived on VIA 633 to find the Ottawa station a mess of construction.  It is being converted to high level platforms.  A mini-van with wheelchair access sits on the platform and meets the trains.  Otherwise there is no way to get a wheelchair from the platform into the station.

Glen Fraser has none, at least the side I've seen.
