CN-leased Bessemer & Lake Erie F7A 720A sits coupled to CN GP9's 4594, 4600 and an RS18, sitting by the huge Ice House (for icing refrigerator cars) northeast of the Mimico Yard roundhouse.

Today, the site of CN's old ice house is home to VIA's Toronto Maintenance Centre building. CN eventually rebuilt their old high-nose GP9 fleet as chop-nose units for roadswitcher and yard work. B&LE 720A also still exists, currently owned by the Grafton & Upton RR as their 1501.
