Back to the Junction. This image shows the overall view from the hillside where Mr. Host shot 25 years later, as recently posted. This was a favourite angle for a long time, until the No Trespassing signs went up down below and the parking area was lost. It is still a nice view, however most fans are content with the walkbridge a bit east of this location.
Late afternoon light, 'sweet-light' some call it, is rather evident on this old scene as the daily 'Starlite' from Toronto to Hamilton (and return) rolls thru behind TH&B 71, 401, 74 and CP 8778. I logged 56 cars and CP caboose 434554. Note the old line, some of it anyway, on the left that pushers from Steam Era days used to utilize, assisting trains up the long grade to Copetown. By the late 70's the siding/stub was just for MoW purposes. The switch is still in and the dwarf signal in place. The "Bayview" sign is still an old wooden one, rather than metal. Lots of changes.  Ah, the good old days........:o)
