A slide I took late December 1981 or early January 1982 while on a day trip railfanning with a friend. I had never been to Cabin D and I might have some of the geography wrong but sort of figure it was a junction point just west of Bathurst St for the CN Oakville and Weston subs. I understand that Cabin D was preserved and on display at the Toronto Railway Museum, at the old John Street Roundhouse.

Please feel free to chime in with the correct location of where this image was taken and info about the operations there.

  1. The white building in the background was Quality Meat Packers (formerly the Toronto Municipal Abbatoir. The plant was in operation until 2014), but the stacks belong to the City of Toronto’s Wellington Destructor beside it (one of their garbage incinerator sites).

  2. Can anyone tell me what facility / company the two smoke stacks are ??

  3. Yeah, this would be in its original location just west of Bathurst St. bridge, before it was moved a year or two later (circa 1983) to make room for more tracks through the corridor. I think they also upgraded all the old manual interlockings around Bathurst St. around that time as well (or maybe a few years later, I’ve seen shots of the then-new Bathurst St. interlocking control board located elsewhere).

  4. What a great shot!!! Cabin D was a landmark.
