The first Lakeshore East GO train of the morning glides into Danforth while the sun begins to crest over the horizon. My balcony was the perfect spot to capture this moment from an elevation!

  1. Liam, your photo brings back lots of memories for me. :-) Prior to the townhouses taking over the former yard and facilities at this location, there was a heavy Engineering presence in the form of the CN Steel Bridge Shops and the CN Danforth Work Equipment Shop (officially opened on June 5, 1956). These major Great Lakes Region facilities were accessed from Gerrard Street East with the official address being ‘Rear of 2314 Gerrard Street East’. I worked at these facilities from 1972 to 1977, and then again from 1984 to 1987.

  2. @trainsintoronto.. Many a time i have climbed that grade or descended the hill on 416/415, 332, 403 and other trains bypassing the York Sub for various reasons, not to mention my time running GO trains..

  3. @ngineered4u it sure is hard to believe, it’s too bad no more freight action happens here aside from the occasional L546 light power move to run around their train.

  4. Hard to believe that on the right hand side of this shot where those townhouses are. CN’S Danforth Yard once stood. Home to steam engines that were used as pushers to get trains up from the Don Yard over the “grade” at Scarborough.
