This is another shot taken on my weekend in Banff.
I loved the vivid colours of the old Bankhead Station opposite the youth hostel on Tunnel Mountain. There are no trains here nowadays, not even a railtrack.
Banff is like that...lots of mysterious references to railways...but no sign of an actual train! Just their haunting hoots echoing down the valley.
Even Tunnel Mountain doesn't have a tunnel! Apparently, when they originally built the railway they were going to put a tunnel through this tiny hill in the middle of Banff...but they somehow never quite got around to it. So Tunnel Mountain doesn't have a tunnnel and it isn't even a moutain! But the name stuck!
