Railway bridge construction over Dupont St.

Railway bridge construction over Dupont St.

December 14, 2010. An alternate view of the photo I posted a couple of days ago. This ramshackle-looking CN railway vehicle was parked on the bridge over Dupont St. at Dundas West for the construction of another railway bridge span. To me, this vehicle almost looks abandoned, though I've seen it in use at various places along the Georgetown tracks during recent construction. The somewhat desolate view north from here towards the West Toronto Diamond (aka The Junction) also makes me think of a more rundown rural or small-town setting. In the distance, you can still see the one remaining St. Mary's Cement silo on Junction Road. It's sister silo was demolished this past autumn.
