UP_1616_1601 with engineer looking back. Second view below.
Still looking back!
UP 1637 with 3 B units and a fifth unit likely another A unit.
Shops tracks looking southeast. Yardmaster's tower in background. It was built to train yardmasters how to work from a tower rather than on the ground as they had always done. Toronto Yard is just days away from opening! .
