Turcot Yards

Turcot 8X10

Built in 1860 the yards housed the main facilities for Grand Trunk Railway. In 1967 the highway interchange system was built in lieu of Expo 67. The City of Montreal recently began a long-term construction project to modernize the interchange. For years the yards were a popular painting spot for local writers. Although the yards became increasingly difficult to access as construction ramped up, some writers still go trackside by the tunnel to paint. Below are some images of my documentation of Turcot yards from 2004 until present.
