In an area that once was blanketed with the tracks of not one but two railroads, CN 438 passes the one remaining steam-era landmark in west London. Originally the Holeproof Hosiery company, the brown brick building in the background somehow has escaped the wrecking ball to become a storage facility. CN 4713 leads 5761 slowly pulls past the VIA depot in London with an unusually long train. They are running immediately behind CN 509, and both trains were running abnormally late.

  1. Used to live in that area as a child! On the left side of the locomotive in your photograph there were no trees. Only L&PS tracks & the L&PS station. Loved to stand beside the L&PS cars & hear their compressors pumping air. Thanks Peter for the memories, and showing how things change
