Knowing that the CP operations at the Drake St. yards were coming to an end my friend (Jack Lord) & I drove down to the yards on a nice sunny day. I remember that it was a Sunday & no work was taking place. We took as many photographs as we could till we ran out of film. In this case we spotted CP 8665 jacked up in the newer portion of the roundhouse, so being careful not to touch anything we took a couple of shots showing the locomotive as it sat there. The sad thing is that there was so much more to photograph & we missed it.
