"Traintown Toronto": CP Rail #12, the southbound Sudbury-Toronto section of "The Canadian", pulls into downtown Toronto at Bathurst Street behind an FP7 and RS10.

There's lots of 70's goodies that fill this busy scene: stainless steel action-red Budd cars, wooden CN vans, 40' boxcars, the old Bathurst St. yard tower. Most prominent however are CN's Spadina roundhouse and servicing facilities in the background, teaming with the usual GMD and MLW passenger power of the time. The steam-era coal tower, wash racks, ready tracks and coachyard complete the scene.

Also visible in the distance is the TTR's Central Heating Plant, and 1 Yonge Street (Toronto Star office tower). The amount of trees in the distance near the roundhouse is oddly perplexing to see downtown.

This photo was taken during one of Emery's Toronto visits, when he was filming video footage for what would eventually be released as his "TrainTown Toronto" video. You can see this same train arriving in part of the footage.

  1. The Hobby Shop here had that DVD on sale a number of years ago. The only train DVD I have purchased. Worth every penny. This photo appears to be just a frame or two past the one on the back of DVD box. Thanks Mr. Dan. :-)
