It really shows how little traffic using the yard these year and not the only one I have seen like this. Shot the yard off the hwy 7 overpass a month ago as well shooting some motor power for the first time in over 10 years.Saw this on my FB feed and thought some UT'ers might find it interesting:

A thousand acres for 1M, LOL
That's $1,000 per acre; had that price increased in line w/CPI it would mean you could buy 1 acre of land in Vaughan today for $9,365 (per the Bank of Canada Inflation Calculator)
Ha ha. Not even out by just one order of magnitude but greater than 2.
With more intermodal and unit trains bypassing yards like this today, yard look very short of equipment to use these yard until traffic picks up.
