GO 726 is headed for Toronto Union Station in this July 30, 1987 image.

Neat shot of a train and landscape that don't look like that now.

Looks like some preserved equipment at the left of the scene. For awhile, there was a railway museum in a warehouse at Toronto Harbour.

It was a leased site that was redeveloped, and the railway equipment was dispersed to other museums or scrapped.

It certainly doesn't, though the signals were still there when i was last there, in September 2015. Here's an identical view from December 2014.

Thanks for the "Now" image.

IMHO the New image lacks some character!
