Facing the other direction from Dan's recent posting of the May 1, 1960 Triple Header, the future looms over the small twice-weekly freight dawdling through what is to become parkland in downtown Brampton.  Headed south, the Orangeville Brampton Railway approaches Queen Street, passing the former site of the CPR station.
