So long searchlights :-( The urban sprawl is clearly evident from this view looking eastwards to the downtown core of The Big Smoke (Toronto). I don't know about you but I kinda liked the days where the city was not separated from Lake Ontario and high rises did not dominate the skyline. I have no idea how anyone can pay over 1 million dollars to live on an onramp of the Gardiner Expressway?
But I digress.... The searchlight signals are still standing guard at the northwestern entrance to the USRC (Union Station Rail Corridor) off the Weston Sub. For how much longer is anyone's guess?
Eventually there will be 8 tracks here when all the work is done. The track to the very right is the CP's Galt Sub. The hooded LED signals for now are turned away from the tracks until they are called to service.
Get those searchlight signals while you can.

  4. You pay a million dollars to live in a condo that’s basically a shoebox anyways.

    Great photo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Neat, and the purpose of the open air ‘tunnel’? Noise abatement? or ?
    sdfourty.

  6. the searchlight signals pictured here are a temporary fixture, as the original strachan ave signal bridge was taken down around 2012 because of the underpass pictured here, the underpass exists to seperate strachan ave itself with the rail corridors, and the hideous looking concrete beams are present for (what I believe) is noise reduction, people have a tendency to complain about railroad noise!
