I am here a few times a week, after photography class. so I take a lot of photos of the opposite platform. why does the train come first for the other direction?

it doesn't. it's just you only notice it when it arrives before your train. :)

Pretty pics. I love photographing stations, trains and their accoutrements. There's something about the solid, repetitive, institutionalism of the railways themselves combined with the transitory nature of people's relationships with and in them. Always been a favourite subject of mine.

Like these, especially the Dundas sign. I keep trying to get the sunset through train windows on the embankment & keep failing...
Agree with Mat about stations, also think the fact that they involve longeurs means they lend themselves thematically to photography - the lending of duration to any captured moment.

I like so much the set and I love the top one because of Edward Hopper atmosphere.

lunch break here at the ice palace.
I love my subway.
Mat put it well. Just before the top shot, there were a hundred people there.

I was going to mention the Hopper connection too. Lovely set and it makes a nice little story too.

It never ceases to amaze me how every Brit-invaded land has suburbs with the same name. We have a Dundas in Sydney too but has an open air railway station rather than an enclosed one such as this.

I tried photographing Museum Station in the heart of Sydney as they have fab old cartoons on the wall- from the 30's I think- but the light was too poor. Any tips to get better light?

Great question: why the train *always* arrives at other platform first?
