  1. Always neat to see shots of these units.

  2. The younger people that see this would never believe there was once many tracks that went through here.

    Now it’s all condos.

  3. It looks like there is someone up in the tower. It would have been a great spot for photos.

  4. I don’t believe that tower was ever put into service after being built. Hopefully an old CN S&C guy can weigh in on that. :-)

  5. A great image of the way things were. Looks like a train taking the High Line in the background.
