A pair of LRCs slumber inside the warm confines of the Spadina roundhouse on a frigid March day in 1985.

Check in, sign a release, secure a hardhat and the facility is yours to explore. Inhale the sweet aroma of oil and grease, chat with a friendly employee, and be grateful you have the privilege to roam these hallowed halls.

  1. Neat, it kinda says something about progress, what with having space-age designed LRC’s sitting in a steam-era facility over pits that once serviced old steam loco.

  2. Awesome shot, wish this kind of access was available today
