Toronto Union Station as it looked from the CN Tower in December 1978. I need to make a trip to see just how shocking the difference is now.  The nose of the westbound Canadian is poking out of the train shed on the 2nd track from the right.

  1. I worked for a short time for CN in Toronto in 1973 when they were building the CN tower. On the yard engine we’d sometimes run by the station on the outside tracks, 13 or 14. I recall one hogger who used to knock off a small bottle of whiskey during a shift (it was the old days) and going by the trainshed, he’d fling the bottle out the window onto the shed roof. I often wondered how many ‘empties’ were up there & would they be seen once the tower was completed.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I worked on Church street for a while and would have lunch on the back deck of the St Lawrence Market to watch the trains go by.
