Steam Locomotive “Toronto”.
On May 16, 1853, the first scheduled train service from Toronto began. A train with three passenger coaches and one freight car pulled by a locomotive named “Toronto” left for Aurora (then known as Machell’s Corners) on the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Railway. Three years later, the Grand Trunk Railway was extended into Toronto.

An old signal tower at Toronto Junction. A great spot watching trains was a road bridge over the railway tracks here. Unfortunately, that bridge was demolished years ago.
