Wandering down to Toronto, specifically around the sprawling facility as seen from the Spadina bridge; one could see a vast array of locomotives most days. Here is a typical view from a Wednesday afternoon in late Sept 1976.
Can be seen; from the left: CN 1323 & 1249. In the rear: CN 4103 and an unidentified S-13. In front, 8521 and 8514. And in a row along the foreground are: CN 4567, 4519, 8226, 8228, 8227 and 8229 and almost out of sight, 8220. The MLW S-7 8200 series seen here were used mostly in and around the Spadina terminal, helping with the make up of CN passenger trains. All these units were gone from the roster by 1985.  Note location of image, as base of CN Tower can be seen in upper left.

  1. Wow! Amazing collection! Sad they are all gone today, even the location :(

  2. Brad: Yep, a GO unit. Probably servicing…..

  3. Wow! I’m sorry, after seeing your pictures from Trawna, that I wasn’t more interested in trains in those days. An amazing amount of activity now all gone. Thanks for recording as much as you did.

  4. What’s the Green unit in the back? Was GO around then? Great shot as always. Miss those days especially going up the tower and looking down at the ‘toy trains’. :)
