Some days looked a bit too blah to bother going out on. But I usually did. It was nice to be able to drive in and park at Dundas station and keep an eye out for action. This would be a typical dull day scene 35+ years ago, a boring (at the time) CN Tempo train with 3150 leader westbound, but in this case the dullness of the scene to me actually makes the picture. Background is the cliff and Dundas Peak, on the right, the old MoW shed where tools and sometimes track cars were stored. Left of the station is the lead for MoW storage track; at least that what I saw there most of the time. Ballast cars often stored there. The wood railing in the foreground protects workers from slipping off onto Hwy 8 below. Not much else to mention, other than I miss the old station, gone for more than 20 years. Melancholic mood slipping in again.

  1. Wow does that bring back memories. When I hired on in 81 the tracks behind the station were gone, but I remember working the Tempo trains as a conductor and Dundas station was a “flag” stop (no regular schedule) trains stopped there. 35 years. Wow where did the time go?

  2. Snake, you were probably down at Bayview sunning yourself on the hood of your car……

  3. weren’t you trying to escape from me at Bayview??

  4. Nice. Scenes like this are pure sunshine to me. Thanks for the memories, Arnold.
