  1. Train Symbol: Extra 4015 West

  2. Wow! Welcome back. You have not disappointed! :)

  3. That’s one sweet scene, not to mention how good it must have sounded.

  4. Oh my, I’m speechless.

  5. Oh my! This is so great!

  6. Before the bridge……….fabulous

  7. The rusty track in the foreground I believe, used to host Electric Lines trains connecting with CP passenger trains, and & express cars off CP trains.. It’s long gone, as is the second crossing, Brooke Street. Sometime around this period, the gate tower was eliminated once the Hwy,5 Dundas Street overpass was built.

  8. Those FA units had a long brass handle to open the side windows. When you flipped the handle, counterweights inside flipped it up or down.For some reason, it made me think of a guillotine. I made sure to keep clear of the handle when my head was poking out the window doing a train inspection.
