CN and CP experimented with a few different container / intermodal setups in their early years before everything was standardized. This view of the west end of CN's Mimico Yard in 1965 shows CN container flatcar 689011 and a sister loaded with early 20' CN Express Freight containers. In the background, the old National Silicates plant off the north end of the yard can be seen.
