VIA FP9A No. 6516 is shown departing westbound from London with a tidy nicely matched four car consist. Note the combination baggage car second in line. Built for Canadian National by GMD London in January 1957 the ‘covered wagon’ is shown sporting its third paint scheme following original olive/black and Allan Fleming orange/black ‘Zebra Stripe’. Incredibly, the venerable ‘Bull Dog’ nosed unit is still in service in the employee of Pan American Railways. Sold at the end of 1989 by VIA to the Conway Scenic Railroad Pan American would acquire the FP9A in 2009. Note as well the CN office tower complex in the background. Following the controlled implosion conducted on February 4th 2001 at 9:15 a.m. the skyline shown above was forever changed.

  1. I miss the old look of the station. Gave it a big city feel.

  2. I love how little this has actually changed.
