That photo of CN 6070 is definitely at Paris on the CN Dundas Sub. The tower of the station is visible to the right of the loco, and the curved platform and superelevation other locators. Likewise the buildings behind the loco including what is now Wm. Kipp's funeral home. Steve Lucas. Photo Bud Laws Collection
The train is on the north track heading west about 1/2
mile east of the present day Paris Jct.
Interesting detail in this photograph of slightly blurred engine westbound approaching Bathurst Street (Front Street West in background) caused not by its speed which would be quite slow but rather by the very low film speed (ASA 10) of colour film back then. Switchtenders shack with coal/coke bin, low mounted loudspeaker(atop white post) used by towerman to communicate with switchtenders. Low switch stands and a higher one.
