Toronto Belt Line Railway

Humber Bay

closeup: see below Goad's 1910

Industrial sidings from GTR main line northward are:
Toronto Bolt and Forging, Dominion Sewer Pipe and Indestructible Brick.

This portion of the old Belt Line remained in use by CNR long after the track north of the brick yard was dismantled.
It included two diamonds with the TTC streetcar tracks in a separate right-of-way along the Queen Street extension.
