      Switch-stands, like sentries, watching over the empty yard.

      There will be more of this with Hunter Harrison at the helm of CP.

      This hasn't been a CP yard for over a decade though, they had sold it to shortline Quebec Gatineau Railway, and they in turn sold it to a University to extend their campuses.

      Hi Michael, congrats for your beautiful railfanning contribution from MTL, much appreciated!
      This picture saddens me though, this yard and tracks were a landmark of my childhood. I went to Collège Stanislas, not far from it. Are the CP tracks removed all the way from Côte St-Luc yard to the east end?

      C Naneix Thank you! No, the main line to Hochelaga Yard is still there and busy. It's this yard which is now gone.

      Ok, Michael, thanks for the quick reply! So the yard is gone :( but the line remains. I'll check it out when I come back to MTL. Cheers!
