On what normally is a quiet Sunday late afternoon, CP 243 is the third train in just 17 minutes, passing the clock tower as it reads 4:21PM. Two AC4400CW's (the second being CSX 426) lead this medium sized manifest past the old Summerhill train station with its prominent clock tower. Built in 1916 when this was considered the north end of the city, this station had the potential to become a massive city hub, and the pride of CP. These dreams were vanquished after Union Station was built, and the Great Depression ultimately closed it in 1930, however the entire structure still stands after 98 years.
