     History
    Opened in the early 40's, Wellington tower was the largest railroad interlocking plant in Canada, all the way to its closure around the year 2000.

    It controlled all trains movements between north of Central Station (specifically from "Grotto") all the way to Victoria Bridge and the east end of Turcot yard.
