    I had to go to downtown Toronto today so took the GO train.
    The first photo taken through the window shows the approach to the platforms

    The second photo inside the platform area. There are still openings in the roof over the tracks from the old steam days.
    Also taken through the window.

    This next photo is inside the station building.
    We are blessed to have such a fine building like this downtown

    Very nice pictures Robin. The inside of that station reminds me of Kings Cross in London back in 89

    Union Station

    Robin:
    Here are a few pics that I took at an open house a few weeks ago.
    The first shows the tracks that you took one of your pictures from.

    and the wall just above the last pic, showing part of the list of stations once served by Canadian railways.
    (Apologies for quality of the pictures. The film had been in my camera for an unknown number of years!)
