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 [6] and more early SkyTrain photos [7]. Thanks again Alan for sharing your photographic wealth with us here!

Remember, you can check out the entire Transit History category [8] for more photos, videos, and stories on SkyTrain’s history and more. Happy 25th, SkyTrain!
