Before condos started sprouting like dandelions, this vantage point on the west side of Union Station made for a nice lunch time destination. Fifteen years later it's almost completely filled in, so I've had to shift my lunch activities a little further west.

  1. I don’t think we see CN freights passing Union in the daytime anymore. There was the one up until the Metrolinx Oakville sub buy out (the number escapes me) that rolled through in the afternoon but not anymore. I caught CN switching the Clarkson yard pulling along string of tanks last night around 10pm. Very nice!

  2. Open racks came back in fashion during the Union Pacific / Southern Pacific merger meltdown that started in 1997. This one, i believe, would be compliments of the Conrail split and the resultant meltdown that occurred. Open multies were OK for shipments within Canada only.

  3. Open autoracks in 2000? Whaaaat?

  4. This is very nice.

  5. Interesting catch! I’m surprised there were still open autoracks as late as 2000.
