When CN Dundas station was reduced to Agent-only status in February 1973, I didn't have too many choices as to exercising my seniority. So I claimed 2nd trick at CN West Toronto with Tues & Wed off. Turns out I actually enjoyed that place. CP's Mactier Sub was on the opposite side of the building from CN's Weston Sub and a little warning of an impending move would be to have the gates come down for old Weston Road. Here we see timetable train 82 with two year old GP38AC 3008 in it's original paint leading a C-424, an SD40, an RS-10 and another C-424 as it passes the CN parking lot and gets ready to make the turn onto the North Toronto Sub. Just another quiet Saturday afternoon and evening in the meat packing district.
