That's exactly what happened.  I've seen pictures (on here somewhere) of the 2nd to last run & the numberboard is blatantly missing.  I guess someone wen t souvenir hunting.

great catch Dave... unusual move too,i see.  They are pulling the  car  back instead of the  usual pushing. Was this boxcar sitting on the main in front of  the  carpet place(ex-brewery) across from borden?  in the mid 80s I used to see a boxcar sitting on the mainline there from time to time probably being unloaded. Im thinking it would be for the carpet place.

Yes, I'm sure you're right about that Torch. I remember driving along Quadra St. and sometimes seeing a boxcar spotted there (never did photograph one though). Here's a single shot of a boxcar in the upper part of the yard taken on July 28, 1985.

Hey Goose.. do you have the  photo of the  transformer move at  Johnson terminals? real curious to see that.  I like the  fotos of the upper yard.. I was always curious to see the cars there..seemed like they unloaded just about anything up there!
