  1. A moment it time for an iconic train. The turbo train looks a little rough at this point. If memory serves, it will less than 2 years before these trains will be retired.You can still see where the red CN used to be on the nose of the power car.
    The neighbourhood most definitely has changed as well. The train is on the south track in the “plant” at Danforth, while the track to the left is the service track that runs from the Don Yard and enters the main at Danforth. The former service track is now track 3 from Cherry St and the embankment to the right is now a construction zone from the DVP all the way to Scarborough Jct all in preparation for what will eventually be a 4 track Speedway for Metrolinx in and out of the downtown core for trains from Stoufville and Oshawa. The times are a changin.

  2. If l’m not mistaken the late Dave Smith lived in one of the houses on the north side. He passed away many years ago.
