About Me

My name is Robert "Rob" Ensor and I have been an avid fan of the San Francisco MUNI System since I was a kid. When I was 13 years old, I rode my first Xcelsior (which was an XDE40) numbered 8634 (which is based out of the Woods Division) and had a look at the brand name on a few other "Brand New back then" XDE40s and it said "New Flyer". So I did some research and they built other types of buses for other cities and I was amazed of all of the other designs on the Xcelsiors that New Flyer has built. So this has lead lead me to what has happened to me today, I have been taking videos of transit since 2014 (14 Years Old) and Photographing buses and trains since 2015 (15 Years Old).
