Parkway is the last Mileboard on the CPR Waterloo subdivision and the middle of this train straddles the sign. Parkway is also the name of the town that once had autonomy here when this section of the CPR Waterloo Subdivision was built in 1961. In 1961 electric operations ended when the re-alignment (about three miles) of the former Grand River Railway was put into service to meet the CNR Waterloo Subdivision. A yard, now used for interchange between CNR/CPR sits here and this is the point Toyota autoracks from 431/2 are handed off.
