viva la vie à VIA

work in progress. photo journal of life on-board 2016 to present. an homage to my sisters and brothers and the unique railway world we inhabit from report to release.

viva la vie à VIA 
#vivalavieaVIA #viarail #viarailcanada

it was not unexpected that I might one day work for the railway. my grandfather and great grandfather were engineers on one side and a railway surveyor on the other.

my parents met aboard The Canadian in 1974

traveling by train as a child opened-up a whole world

despite i signed on with the railway in 2016
