A Panoramic View of Roundhouse Park Today!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
Norm Betts, the professional photographer who has been documenting the development of Roundhouse Park in photos, has sent this great panoramic shot of Roundhouse Park now that the laying of the sod has pretty much been completed and with it the reconstruction sof the park's grounds. As we sweep from left to right, we see:

  • Bremner Boulevard with the downtown city skyline behind it
  • Cabin D, the Tool Shed and Don Station
  • The Roundhouse itself with the growing wall of condominiums behind it
  • The CPR #7020 switcher and our CLC Whitcomb on the turntable
  • Our CNR 4-8-4 #6213 Steam Engine in front of the coaling tower
  • The Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome)
In the variation on this picture seen below, we can see how the picture was taken using a "cherry picker". Here we see Mike Veri, the roundhouse site construction supervisor, operating the unit.
