On Sunday, August 21st of 2016 Canadian Pacific train 235 collided with 118 at the Howland crossover in midtown Toronto just after 5am. CP 118 (taken away at time of the picture) was crossing over from the North to the South track at Howland crossover (the crossover pictured) while CP 235 was running light power (the 2 engines pictured) from CP's Toronto Agincourt yard to either Spence Yard on the MacTier Subdivsion or straight to Lambton Yard on the Galt Subdivision to pick up their train and proceed west. The rumor is that CP 235 was not paying attention to their signals and came around the corner barreling at Howland at upwards of 50mph, ran the red block and side swiped the last 18 cars of 118's train in the crossover. The results, a shaken up however okay crew, yet fired from further rail operations.

  1. ih ok

  2. Don’t think they rerouted with the amount of trains that go by there – just held them up till the next day (today)

  3. well not to be disrespectful or anything, but hey it was just a GEVO that derailed in terms of equipment, but that AC44… Why

    Also good that the crew is safe

  4. Even cleaning up a derailment, the crew still gotta have their timmies (right by the ties)
