Speeding Trains

I am standing on the pedestrian bridge over the Rouge River watching the Go Transit train pass by.



VIA passenger train going east to Montreal. In 2015 two men found guilty of terrorism charges after being accused of plotting to derail a passenger train on this bridge were sentenced to life in prison. During their trial, court heard that an undercover FBI agent gained their trust and surreptitiously recorded their conversations, which made up the bulk of the evidence in the case. The two were recorded speaking about alleged terror plots they would conduct in retaliation for Canada's military actions in Muslim countries, including the derailment of a Via Rail train travelling between New York and Toronto.

  5. Great captures of the speeding train.
    I for one am glad they were caught and put away. Where do these people get the idea that killing innocent people with somehow make things right? It is a mystery.
