Almost surreal. :o) The boys on CP 8242 make sure they look both ways before crossing the street. Rosbergs Department Store has long gone out of business. It would have been interesting to see this local, on its way back from the CN yard to CP Montrose, thread the pedestrian and automobile traffic on a busy day. But, by 1993, there is little business remaining and running this line between the two major carriers is a breeze.
View is at the corner of Queen and Erie Sts in the Falls. The loco sure looks out of place.
