Another Canadian Memory
Author: Blackfoot

The eastbound Canadian, about three or four miles away from arrival at Toronto Union Station.  I wanted to catch it at Pottery Road, but running short of time I backed up as close as I could to the Don River and caught it going through the s curves just south of the crossing.  Saturday, June 25th, 2011.

Cheers,
Dwayne

No idea what the track speed would be.  Since this is the line that GO Transit's Richmond Hill trains use I would imagine it's at least 30mph, but that's just a wild guess.

The Canadian with 12 sleepers - combination of Manor and Chateau Sleepers. Nice to see! Back in the day of 3x per week service!
