  1. More than likely this was from the Royal York hotel. When I got there I asked for a room with a good view of the railroads.

  2. Great shot!

    Taken from where?

    That is CP Rail train #11 (tomorrow’s) power in lower left corner, the F unit likely off (today’s) #12….and very likely that F will become ‘The Push’ at Leaside later (today).

    And stored inside the CPR John Street roundhouse for various private owners at times throughout the 1970′s: CPR#136, CPR#1057, CPR#1201 (was rebuilt at the roundhouse), H 1 c CPR#2839 (yes, a Royal Hudson, purchased by Ontario Government for the Ontario Science Centre), CNR#5107 (purchased by Ontario Government for the Ontario Science Centre), and CPR Mikado #5361, plus other steamers…and first gen diesels….

  3. Those elevators lasted to the early 80′s. It’s hard to believe there was so much industry down there.

  4. A very interesting perspective of this historic site. Very nice, Sir!
