Meanwhile, GO Transit (GOT) 557 and its train were stopped and waiting to head east into Toronto Union Station. In the background is Rogers Centre, home to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team.

    1. Thanks a lot, Jim. I've been making almost annual trips to Toronto since 2009, and I'm amazed at much changes each time I visit.

  2. That's a very nice image. So the building with Rogers on it is the station? I was thinking a stadium. :-) Either way lovely building too, impressive.

    1. Thanks a lot, Shelly. The Rogers Centre is a stadium. It's where the Blue Jays play. You can't actually see Toronto Union Station in this image. It's about a half of a mile (.75 kilometers) east of Rogers Centre.
