The CN Tower photographed with an extreme wide
angle (19mm) lens in June 1976 from Spadina Avenue.

A few CN diesels stand in the foreground and a portion of
Spadina Yard can be seen on the right, while to the left,
tracks lead directly into Union Station, with a few that will 
veer to the right into the CP John Street Roundhouse  on 
the other side of the Tower.

Another view of the CN Tower taken with a 19mm 
extreme wide angle lens in June 1976.

This one shows more of the CN Spadina Roundhouse,
including the coaling towers to the right and a couple of
diesel locos.

Hardly any of the trackwork exists today and the
Rogers Centre (originally known as SkyDome) has 
yet to be built.

The GO Transit Wilowbrook Yard,  in one of 2 
photos captured on the fly through the window
of a moving train on an adjacent track, fairly
late in the evening during the mid-70s.

Situated west of their Mimico station, the yard
has now undergone a complete transformation 
and expansion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GO_

The staple of GP Transit in the Willowbrook Yard
was GP40-2W, GP-40TC and FP units, in push-pull 
operation. The FP units (numbered 900-911) were 
mostly purchased from Ontario Northland and used 
as auxiliary power control units (APCU), having lost
their engine, main generator and traction motors and
now only used to provide extra electricity to the train.

The FP unit is #904, built by GM in 1952 (Ser#A384)
and sold into the US in 1991. Its companion to the left, 
GO Transit #708, was made into a GP 40-2W HO
model by Athern. http://www.athearn.com/Products/Default.aspx?

Michigan Central Roundhouse at London Ont. Oct 1982
Horton St. E, View

Michigan Central roundhouse was used for many years as 
a fruit & vegetable warehouse. The produce was brought 
in by boxcars via the L&PS After the fruit & vegetab
business ended the roundhouse became a restaurant.
It is now, to the best of my knowledge, unused.

Part of the CNR yard at Hornepayne, Ontario from an
early 1960's photo postcard. The large building at the
bottom left is the back of the old station, a very large
building now vacant and boarded up windows (following vandalism), since a new VIA station was built. View the 
old brick station at https://www.flickr.com/photos/evrythingsucks/

The Northern Ontario town was originally established
in 1915 as Fitzback when the Canadian Northern 
Railway's transcontinental line was built through the 
area. It was renamed Hornepayne in 1920 after British financier Robert Horne-Payne. In time, Hornepayne 
became an important CN divisional point.
