Walking West From Downtown Through the Railway Lands.

Long before Toronto's condominium boom, southwest of Union Station where The Rogers Centre
(I still call it the Skydome) used to be switching yards for CN and CP's passenger rail rolling stock. One of the locomotive roundhouses remains today as home for Steamwhistle Brewing, a Railway museum and a furniture store. Further west, large condo developments going from abandoned land to New York's Battery Park City in the space of a decade.

I haven't been this way in a long time, I've been to the Toronto Railway Museum's outdoor exhibit's in the past but not further west of the Roger's Centre. This was part of a dry run for an Oakville Camera Club outing later this month along Harbourfront.
