Feb 21/73 I caught train No. 11 with 4073-8574 on a dull cold afternoon leaving West Toronto. Even thought it's a cluttered image, it still provides an overview of what The Junction looked like at that time. CN's Weston Sub is on the far right, with the CP North Toronto Sub crossing east/west in the far background. And even further away is the still-standing CPR West Toronto " heritage " station. Either I took this through an open window from inside the CN waiting room, or, I walked outside and stood beneath the roof overhang. Just another day at CN West Toronto - tickets, telegrams, trains and what-have-you. (for a later-life photo of 4073, see my photo of MUCTC 1303) at http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=29750

  1. Some things never change…CP’s engines were just as dirty then, as they are now! :P

    Another classic Mr. Mercer!

  2. Thanks for this photo. I spent a lot of time watching trains from the two West Toronto stations and boarded quite a few as well. I believe this was the first year that CP did not run the Park car on the Toronto section except for mid-June to mid-Sept. and for two weeks around Christmas.
