In 1995 considerable reconstruction occurred along the former TH&B (now CP) line from the High Level Bridge into Hunter Street GO station as the line was being upgraded for GO Transit.  The station underwent a major facelift. The trackbed was lowered thru the half mile long Hunter Street tunnel as well as the Main St overpass in order to accommodate comfortable clearance the GO Bi-levels. The behind schedule and overbudget project took most all of 1995. Here is an image taken in the downtown just west of the tunnel entrance, with CP 5673, 5523 and CR 5625 (new SD60 out of GMD)slowly making it's way toward the US.

  1. This is a nice time capsule. I didn’t realize how much was actually done in 1995/6.. now it’s all grown in again..
