More SkyTrain history with Alan M: photos of Scott Road Station, 1990

What a bounty: Alan M has shared some great photos from the opening of Scott Road Station in 1990. No, it’s not 80s SkyTrain, but it’s still a part of SkyTrain heritage all the same!

He’s provided captions for each so, as before, I have just put them in and added no extraneous commentary. Click each one for a MUCH larger version as well. Enjoy!

You also might recall that Alan M has shared some great historic photos in two past posts: here’s 1986 SkyTrain photos and more early SkyTrain photos. Thanks again Alan for sharing your photographic wealth with us here!

Remember, you can check out the entire Transit History category for more photos, videos, and stories on SkyTrain’s history and more. Happy 25th, SkyTrain!
