Bit of a personal nostalgia kick looking at photos of this sort.  I'm up in at old Canada Crushed Stone overhang that housed a conveyor belt in order processed material from the north side quarry could cross to some loading on the south side. All this has been gone for many years. (Operation shut down in 1974-ish)
But it was a good vantage point so long as you watched where you were walking (holes) and did not get caught.
Here, looking down at mile 4 is westbound CN 9430, 5581 and 2025.  Thats the Sydenham Rd bridge in the background. I'm glad I survived this rather reckless period in my life. Got a few photos, anyway.
