Jeff Friesen Took a Train Across Canada… But It Was a Very Small Train

Photographer Jeff Friesen took a trip across the Canada, all the way from Newfoundland on the east coast to British Columbia in the west. It could be called a train trip, but in reality Friesen carried the train with him–a model of the streamlined 1959 passenger train that first held the now legendary title “The Canadian”.

Friesen’s photographs of the journey capture the beauty of Canada from a low down perspective, working the train into settings which make it look almost like its real-life counterpart–that is if the scale of rocks and grass weren’t totally off. This train is just 2-inches tall.

Find more of Jeff Friesen’s photography on his personal website, purchase prints of his Ghost Train series, or give him a follow on Instagram (where you’ll find all kinds of bizarre LEGO dioramas).
