On a nippy Winter's morning, the sun rises over an almost empty Davisville Yard. Most of the subway trains normally stored here are out and about providing morning rush-hour service on the Yonge line. A pair of red Gloucester "Red Rocket" G1 subway cars, 5052 & 5053, sit near the shop building awaiting servicing - the original Toronto subway cars dating from the Yonge line's opening in March 1954. In the background, a newer set of MLW-built M1 subway cars sit on one of the yard tracks near the CN Belt Line bridge.

Original photographer unknown, Dan Dell'Unto collection slide.
