A pair of well-worn 6-axle "Big M's", lead by ratty looking CP M636 4713, head eastbound across CP's Belleville Sub approaching the Victoria Park Avenue overpass on their way to Agincourt Yard. The midtown Toronto skyline is visible in the background, with numerous hi-rise apartment buildings and office towers including the Inn on the Park hotel tower near Don Mills.

By this time CP's "Big M's" were on their last legs, and retirement for the last ones wasn't far off (the official Big M retirement would be held at St. Luc later that year in December). A handful had one last hurrah when they were pulled for the deadlines and reactivated for a year or two due to CP's chronic power shortage issues. CP 4713 would be retired in December 1993, reactivated in April 1994 but only run for just two months before being sidelined for good.
