Just can't get enough !


July 24, 1980 the NRHA Toronto Convention.


 note the multiple private rail cars in the Spadina Coach yard


AND also in the Spadina Coach Yard:


1)  the Northlander


2) Tempo equipment


3) MLW FPA4


4) MLW S13's working the yard


5) far distance, look under the Spadina Ave overpass: a Tempo equipped MLW 3100 (orange body white cab)


6) at left is the lead to the new (at that time) GO downtown storage yard.


7) the never used TTR Control Tower


8) And of course the NRHA doubleheader special featuring Mountain Type CNR 6060 and VIA FP9A #6539 along with several NRHA member owned private rail cars.


9) that du Maurier billboard atop the silos


10) the shadow of the Bathurst Street overpass (with TTC PCC streetcars rumbling by...)


James Adeney captured this special at Hamilton Junction (near Bayview), see:


  NRHA at Bayview   


Night time looking east:


  Bathurst Street 1977   


CNR 6060 in full stride:


  at Sunnyside July 19, 1980   


What's interesting:


…. not a GE to be seen....anywhere !


...And yes that 6060 exhaust talk was great to listen to....
