If you couldn’t get to the Canada Line open house two weeks ago, take a look at some photos of the event thanks to kind contributors David Lam, Tafyrn Palecloud, and CJ Stebbing.

First, David Lam took the photo at the start of this post, and you can find a full set of his photos at the Trans-Vancouver bus photo site. (I did a profile of David & his Trans-Vancouver bus enthusiast associates, if you’d like to read it.)

Second, you can see Tafyrn Palecloud’s photos at Canada Line Photography. Tafyrn is well known for having the most comprehensive Canada Line photograph site online, which he runs along with Seamora Palecloud. (I wrote a profile of Tafyrn and Seamora on the blog as well, if you’d like to see that!)

And last but certainly not least, CJ Stebbing sent along a set of photos, which he is also hosting in two album on his Facebook account: here’s album 1, and here’s album 2. Here are six of CJ’s photos as an appetizer (and that’s CJ in the last one)!

    Will the new stations have fare gates installed??? (Just curious)

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano, April 22, 2009 @ 8:48 am

    Airic: Yes, the federal/provincial funding is intended to cover faregates in all stations on the system, including the Canada Line.

    Like most other stations they look spacious and clean, and the fact it goes straight to the airport is fantastic since few North American railway systems do that.

    However, the stations just look like slabs of dirty concrete without character turning Vancouver into a urban jungle. It seems every other day the pillars at ground level are ideal for hidden drug taking or pushing – great way to start the day – NOT! Will stations be fitted with CCTV to prevent criminal acts of this sort?

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano, April 23, 2009 @ 9:04 am

    I believe so — all the current SkyTrain stations have CCTV cameras in them already.
