I met Jason Jongen at an operating session on Al Crisp's layout near Severn Bridge, Ontario, north of Toronto.
(Because Jason knows the layout's controls well he was engineer for train 431/432 and I was learning the ropes as brakeman and conductor.
I'll post a video from the operating session. I tried to take some video when I had a few minutes clear).
Jason is an accomplished photographer who has a large collection of Canadian train photos.
He has been sharing his pictures with friends and colleagues. He gave me permission to post some of his Canadian train photos here on my website for your enjoyment.
