Toronto Railway Museum

This display on the turntable was easy to view and photograph on an Aug 2015 visit.
Back in August I visited the TRM railway display at the old CPR John St. roundhouse which is near the CN Tower and the Skydome. Visiting these displays are best in the off season and through the week. I found it hard to get good views with the volume of visitors, many with children crawling all over the equipment. The Blue Jays game was not that far off also bringing in more than usual passers by. Another visit will take place at a future point for a better look....George Dutka

CPR S-2 near the entrance to the indoor display.
The backdrop of downtown Toronto is totally different from what it once was when this car was still in service.

All the equipment is in very good shape. Note the ladders are blocked off to keep the kids at bay.

There are train rides during the summer months for all to have.
An overall view from the steps near the CN tower. Note the display from the summer games.
