CN Portal Heights….now RMT’s Canora** Station, at the north end of the 5 km Mount Royal Tunnel on the electric suburban line between Montreal Central Station and Deux-Montagnes, Quebec.

(**named for CAnadian NOrthern RAilway ….builder of the Tunnel)

Dual Mode ALP-45DP units also use the tunnel now on the route to Mascouche. Units lower their pantograph and switch to diesel power at Ahuntsic. And note the duel set of horns: Noise By-laws adjacent to some of the overnight lay-over yards do not permit testing of the horns before the first run in the early morning....so an extra set “just in case”
And if you time it right….you can catch a train above the tunnel portal on CP’s line to Park Avenue and onto Saint-Jerome that has come ‘round the mountain from Gare Lucien-L-Allier (Windsor Station) downtown…not through it.
