This is the southbound ONR-CN passenger train that ran prior to the ONR getting the infamous TEE train sets. I believe they alternated CN and ONR head end power. On this day, CN 6536 and an unknown B unit pass the old Richmond Hill station. Note the new arrival of welded rail. And the station was moved in the early 1980s to Elgin Mills Rd to become a senior centre. Its current status I do not know, but assume it is still standing.

  1. Further information on the station brought to my attention (Thanks, Terry!)is that it was built in 1906 for the James Bay Rwy, later the Canadian Northern Ontario Rwy, later Canadian Northern, and now of course Canadian National. The station was closed in 1968 and moved in 1979 to Elgin Mills & Leslie Sts as the Richmond Hill Minor Soccer Club.

  2. Great shot, the dwarf signal governed southward movements from the siding through a spring switch (SS).
