Over on Twitter, SkyTrain’s communications liaison Jennifer Siddon [2] has been posting some historical SkyTrain photos for people to enjoy. I thought I’d cross-post them on the blog so you could see them too!

(Jennifer also reminded me that SkyTrain celebrated its 24th year of operations on January 3, so let’s send our rapid transit system the happiest of birthday wishes!)

More photos after the jump…
