West Coast Express commuter service F59PHI #904 rests at Waterfront Station in Vancouver in 1996. The service only started in 1995 so it was still quite fresh and new when I rode it. I was taking an evening train (even now this service only runs inbound to Vancouver in the morning and back at night, no daytime 2-way service!) back to the suburbs to meet up with my dad at Coquitlam Central Station after he was done business meetings. I’d spent the day on my own taking the skytrain, seabus and walking to visit hobby shops, museums and do other stuff on my own in Vancouver. I would have just turned 16 at the time and this was one of the first times I was given free reign on a vacation to go and do things on my own.
