Cab Units: CN – ONR equally shared motive power assignment on the jointly operated trains #98 and 99, the overnight Northland.

In the background is the original Spadina Avenue overpass, complete with metal stairway to the CN Spadina Motive Power Shop. Upper right corner is the top of the then new Globe and Mail building.
