One of CN's Turbo Trains is pictured heading westbound on the Kingston Sub at Pickering in June 1974. When CN introduced the Turbo they ran a press train between Toronto and Montreal to show off their latest and greatest on December 10th 1968. Unfortunately at Kingston (Division St. crossing) it hit a meat delivery truck - there were no injuries but it spoiled the show.
