For a period in 1978-1979,  CP had Algoma Central GP7's 150 and 154 on lease (both part of ACR's first GP7 order built in 1951). They mostly ran out of Toronto on various road and local jobs. Here, the pair head up CP's Couboug Turn, getting ready to leave Toronto (Agincourt) Yard at the north-east end by Finch Avenue, in order to head down the connector and join the Belleville Sub at Staines. No shortage of open trilevel and bilevel autoracks are in today's train, likely bound for the GM plant in Oshawa.

Power on the adjacent track (possibly heading to/from the diesel shop in the distance) includes CP GP35 5016, M630 4510, another big M and an A-B pair of F-units. Two Alco/MLW switchers wait behind, likely pulldown power that worked the east end of the yard doing flat-switching. The old van shop is visible in the background.
