The Toronto portion of the westbound Transcontinental passenger train stops at MacTier CP station en route to a Sudbury Jct. meet with the Montreal portion of the train; where they will be combined for the trip to Vancouver. This particular loco was a rather frequent sighting on this train. The nondescript modern brick building is still there, unchanged, as the location is a CP crew change point.

  1. Not at all Arnold. The company (at least before EHH took over) was always appreciative of it’s employees and always had a last trip celebration. Lot’s of fellow employees meeting them at the station, special orders from the dispatchers,gifts from the company and the union. Lot’s of guys even picked up their wives in Parry Sound so that they’d be with them on arrival. The last trip was always a big deal!

  2. I hope that for you this wasn’t another example of a railroader dedicating half of his life to his employer, and then on the final day and the last ride of his illustrious career, nobody from the company gave a damn and you walked away unappreciated.

  3. My fondest recollection of this station is of Dec. 09 2009 when I arrived here on CP 9643 South to end my 30 year career as a running trades employee. I spent many hours here waiting for a train.

  4. The Super F 4066 also singly handled Freight, see:

  5. Of the many changes I can see from then and now, 3 I will note are the “MacTier” Station Name Sign as seen here on the North side of the building is now gone leaving only the one above the staircase on the East side facing the yard. The yard is now much smaller than pictured here with only 5 tracks and the main, the shops/water tower have all been torn down and the turntable pit filled in with a wye built over top, the East leg of the wye leads into the old still standing foundation of the roundhouse facing Stewart Lake! The yard has also since been re-aligned and extended to the North up to Stewart Lake road, and the front stairway of the station has also seen some cosmetic changes including yellow handrails/new concrete stairs and a new front door setup. The interior has also been completely re-done as crew/trainmaster offices, but the exterior and the basement are basically untouched! Very cool shot AWM!

  6. Those later 4060/70 series FP7′s were all 65mph dual-service units, based out of Toronto IIRC. Common fixtures on #11 and #12. A few went to VIA, the rest kept for the Montreal commuter ops that later became AMT.
