CN RS18 3855 leads two leased Bessemer & Lake Erie F-units on a freight heading over the Cooksville Creek bridge around Mile 11.8, to the west of "Lakeview" on CN's Oakville Sub. CN had a number of B&LE 700-series F7A's and F7B's on lease in the mid-60's, as did CP.The Lakeview mileboard/station name sign was to the east of here at Mile 11.1. The area had a few sidings to a Department of National Defense facility off Cawthra & Atwater, as well as a long spur to the Ontario Hydro/HEPC Lakeview Generation Station. It disappeared from CN timetables sometime between 1965 and 1967, replaced by the new "Port Credit East" at Mile 11.5.

  1. There’s a small writeup on the property in the Mississauga heritage link below. It was the Department of National Defense’s No.15 Regional Ordnance Depot:

  2. Canadian Munitions ? and/or Defence Plant ?

  3. That Department of National Defence installation must have been quite important at one time. I was in there in the 1980′s picking some Customs forms and I recall there were a number of tracks inside.
    wonder if had been the storage facility for the nearby Small Arms factory and the Gunnery range.
