Grand River Railway car 842 stops at Paris Station for a photo view, with riders having a look around, during a fantrip excursion on the line (note the "Special" signage in the windows). The station, located at milepost 13.3 of the line and built during 1916, was demolished during the early 1980s. Passenger service on the GRR ended in 1955, five years after this photo was taken.
