CP SD40 5535 and GP35 5013 head a westbound freight on the Belleville Sub, crossing the high bridge over the West Don River just east of Leaside and west of Donlands (junction with the CN Leaside Spur to Oriole). The trailing 5013 sports a unique version of CP's earlier 5" stripe scheme known as the "Ogden Multi" (with small multimark and stripes only going up 2/3 of the way). A nice cut of 40' boxcars makes up a good portion of the head end.  Visible in the background to the right is IBM's sprawling Don Mills headquarters, at 844 Don Mills Road / 1150 Eglinton Avenue East, which used to have a rail spur coming off the CP's Belleville Sub leading into one of the factory buildings (you can see the large roll-up doors from here).  Mike Mastin photo, colour slide from the Dan Dell'Unto collection.

  1. I love 40′ boxcars in the old CP script.
