Nice! I went there in 2004 and got a few shots that are on the shortlines board. CN Tower is an amazing structure isn't it??

That's a cool shot on the GO Transit. When I seen your Toronto pics I thought I'd share mine. Did you happen to go up the CN Tower? It is an amazing structure.

Yes I did! One thing I noticed while I was eating in the diner near the top was that there was a roundhouse just across the street! :D I went to look at it after I finished touring the tower. It is owned by the Steam Whistle Brewery. I couldn't go into the roundhouse (well, I could, but only into the visitors center/gift shop), but I did look in the back windows, and they still had some rail equipment in there!! :D INCLUDING A FULL SIZED EMD GP9!! :D :D :D Yes I had fun in Toronto. Too bad you can't take Amtrak there anymore (at least without going to New York). :cry:

Yes! I looked at every square inch of the tower (that I was allowed to look at)! That was a bit scary! :shock:
