I love the signs that you see at train stations that tell you where you are and how far you are from where you are going or where you have been. This is the sign from my home station in Huntsville, Ontario.
Canada changed over to the metric system when I was 8 years old, I'm 44 now but this train sign appears to be a little outdated by showing the distance in miles instead of kilometers. I learned both systems when I was growing up and regularly use both when judging distance, temperature and fuel efficiency of a vehicle. I'm just one of those funny Canadians who overlapped the big change.
Thanks for checking out my site. All comments are most welcome and greatly appreciated.
Have a great day!
