This photograph shows the locomotive entrances to stalls 3 to 9 at the CP Drake St roundhouse in Vancouver BC. These were the main working stalls of the building in 1981. Stalls 10 to 12 (not shown)were used as the diesel shops. The remaining un-numbered portions of the roundhouse, & some areas of the back shop were used by CP Transport for vehicle servicing. These were the dying days of CP activity at the Drake St site. As you walked around the area you could see where many of the tracks had been recently removed, & ground preloading for Expo 86 was well underway. Today the area of the roundhouse once occupied by stalls 3 to 12 still exist, but with a completely different use being applied to it.
