|View from my "office" window.|
UPDATE: Since first publishing this in 2011, I have returned to working from home. So now I can be back in my office with the great view of passing trains.
I was visiting the office of a client last month near Toronto. Her office overlooked the CPR mainline. Got to admit—it was tough to keep my mind on our meeting every time I heard that familiar rumble of an approaching train.
It made me think: Wouldn’t it be great to have an office window like that?
In fact, I do have an office window that is like that—sort of. The decision to downsize my layout led to some losses, but also to some gains.
|My office . . . .|
One of the gains was room for my office in my train room. My desk now sits under part of the layout; as I work I can be pleasantly interrupted by passing trains every two minutes or so on the lower level. (The lower level of the layout is a loop.)
A video of what I see when I look outside my “office” window can be found on my YouTube channel by clicking here. Sit back and enjoy the view!
My workplace is across 9th Avenue SW from the Laggan Subdivision. Some days it’s not easy to put work aside for a moment or two to take a peek at what’s rolling by.ReplyDelete
