Carleton and Davenport was a network of railways, before the Junction | with predictions 4 the Junction.


The neighborhood of Carleton and Davenport is a network of railways. A short distance south of Carleton the tracks of the Grand Trunk, Toronto Grey  and Bruce and Credit Valley, which run alongside from Parkdale, begin to diverge, the Credit Valley taking a westerly direction parallel with the Dundas Road, until it reaches Lambton, when it deflects to the south-west, and the others running to the north west. At this point of divergence the new Ontario  and Quebec  Railway makes its junction with the Credit Valley.

This railway centre is known as West Toronto Junction. Here the railway yard for the accommodation of the through freight traffic of the Ontario and Quebec Railway is located, and it is expected that it will very shortly an important and populous neighbourhood.
