A Panoramic Image of Roundhouse Park!

Click on each image for a closer look!
In today's posting we feature a panoramic photo of Roundhouse Park from the roof of the Roundhouse by Stephen Gardiner. In this shot, it is clear that some of the radial tracks for the storage of our railway engines are ballasted as per normal railway practice but others as can bee seen in the pictures below are set into the grass for aesthetic reasons. As you can see, the only evidence of the rails are the rows of leaves caught on top of each of the rails. Also clearly shown in these pictures are the very unique railway crossings so prevalent in Roundhouse Park with a standard gauge railway crossing a 7 1/2" gauge miniature railway at multiple points. In the final shot below, we see one the standard radial tracks passing Cabin D and its tool shed with these being positioned against the constantly changing skyline of the City of Toronto.
