A Doug Lawson slide. Looking for all the world like fish in a tank, a gaggle of MLW and GMD noses are staring each other down, in between runs during the busy holiday time. Spadina was fan-friendly, as long as you didn't you over-step your bounds. In a few years it would disappear when the ball stadium SkyDome was built. The cab units would begin retirement after the late 1980s, a combination of cutbacks and the new F40s.

  1. This is great!

  2. Wow. I found out about the ease of access at Spadina too late.

  3. What a wonderful chance to study FPA7′s versus the more elegant FPA4′s. FIne shot taken at the last moments of passenger grandeur.

  4. Nice shot but can’t understand this love affair some have with MLW F units.I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder so if you like chunky bodies,poor welds,mixture of sharp lines ( headlight bezel ) and curves,ungainly ‘fenders’ and overall asymetrics then have at it and keep up your love affair with these units.I think it is an eastern thing for some reason but to each their own,I guess.
