MLW RS-23 CP 8027 is seen here beside the Trois-Rivieres roundhouse in (approx) March 1971. In 1970-71 its siblings CP 8035 and 8040 were much more frequently seen here. The RS-23's did their yard switching singly, I never saw them MU'd in pairs. Alco S-2 switcher CP 7042 was another regular.  
No structure or tree visible beyond the tracks remains - the CP structures were all demolished, while the adjacent neighborhood was cleared to make way for Quebec Autoroute 40. Quebec Gatineau Railway serves T-R now.
