Hard to be sure of exact location now but this is probably close to it. (Executive Committee are discussing (finally) removing the Harbour Lead Rail Line next week!

The rail spur to Redpath was removed about a decade ago.^^ Any loss of rail connection, particularly to an area that likes to call itself a Port, is a step down. That pretty much leaves sugar - until they get offered a big enough bag of cash for their land - and road salt. So very world class.
Those light standards really are beautiful. By comparison that stretch today is an ugly tangle of patchy asphalt lined with crumbling jersey barriers, though at the very least the monument was retained, a fate that can't be said for a lot of our built history.The classic QEW lighting we associate w/the Credit River bridge today was used there as well.
That should be restored, as should the monument, great 'gateway' feature.
