More from 8 years on this day... GO Transit F59PH class-unit 520 (the first '59 built by GMD/EMD, builder's plate stamped S/N A-4745 built September 1988) cruises through the switches at Bathurst Street, bringing the passengers of morning Georgetown line train #206 into downtown Toronto for another workday.520 had less than a year left at this point - she was sold to RB Leasing in March of 2009, and went on to serve VIA, AMT and Metrolink as a leased commuter unit. The Quality Meat Packers abattoir/slaughterhouse on the right lasted longer, but eventually closed in 2014 after operating decades in that location. And Strachan Avenue crossing in the background has since become a giant hole in the ground (literally...grade separation).
