Waiting At The Railroad Station

    Here is Joan sitting at the McBride train station waiting for a train to take her to Jasper, Alberta.  She is going to visit with our friends John and Di for a few days.  I dropped her off before the train was due, then came back home.  It’s probably a good thing I did, because the train ended up being an hour late in arriving at McBride.  Amazingly, despite being an hour late, it arrived at Jasper on time.
    The McBride train station is a hundred year old building that sits prominently as a focal point at the end of Main St.  It features a cafe/coffee house-The Beanery II, and the Whistle Stop Gallery.  You can see some of the items overflowing from the gallery in the photo.
