As a bonus feature, Window Wonderland has animated the beloved Train Mural located in the Junction at Pacific and Dundas. Using images of visitors from different time periods from the West Toronto Junction Historical Society, the animator tells a story about the progression of the Junction’s history. It begins with an 1870s locomotive passing by passengers on the platform of the 1911 West Toronto Station, followed by a horse and buggy, representing the start of trade to the area. As each vehicle passes by, they become a more modern version of the previous one. At the end of the animation, a Pacific Steam Locomotive leaves the station, taking passengers to a new destination.
