Old Freight Yard

Canadian Pacific freight tracks still remain in this area near the SkyTrain reversing zone beyond Waterfront Station, but in diminished numbers.  The territory immediately to the left of SkyTrain is now used for the terminal for West Coast Express commuter rail, which takes a different route from SkyTrain to go much further out on the Lower Mainland.

Despite all the construction in central Vancouver that postdates this scene, many historic buildings have been preserved on the blocks nearby in the city's famous Gastown district.
