On the CP E&N turntable at Victoria on Saturday 1976-05-01, Sperry car SRS 129 (which dates from 1925 as Lehigh Valley 29) is rotated in a time warp of similar-age CP facilities and equipment, most notably the 1920s Industrial Works 100-ton auxiliary crane 414326.

In the distance above the centre of the car is the simple 1972 concrete block depot at mileage 0.8 which replaced the downtown depot at mileage 0.0 at Store Street.
