CPR Stories and the Junction History Quiz – Dec. 2nd at 7 PM by Zoom

Renowned CPR speaker and lifelong Junctionite Raymond Kennedy will share his fireside chat audio recording of “CPR STORIES” at the December 2nd meeting.  Raymond gave this talk at the 30th Anniversary of the Canadian Pacific Historical Association recently.  Raymond has lived and worked in these Toronto streets for over 80 years, being a CPR employee for 40 years including at the West Toronto Depot. He is also the webmaster of Old Time Trains, the largest website of Canadian Railway history and stories – trainweb.org/oldtimetrains.   

Raymond is the celebrated author of “German Spies Caught” in our Leader & Recorder 2017 Issue #1.  This story illustrates the quickness and the linguistic luck of Raymond’s grandfather in the capture of two German spies in the CPR yard east of Scarlett Road.  This story is just one of many in the audio recording, including one previously untold story of how a young brakeman saved a fast passenger train (The Steamboat Toronto-Port McNicoll) from a deadly wreck. Ask your questions live immediately afterward. 

Please join this renowned Canadian Railway expert and then test your knowledge with the Junction History Quiz, including local Indigenous history questions, at our December meeting!
