Here is a view of the old  GRNR shop, which was once the focal point for the maze of electric electric rail in the area. Since it was dieselized in late 1961, it was reduced to a car shop. On April 19, 1992 it was reduced to rubble after a major fire roared thru the premises, the roof collapsed, and the building was razed.

  1. @Stephen Host: Torn down in the 60s or 70s, if I’m not mistaken.

    Anyone know when that building on the left came down? I don’t recognize it.

    I remember visiting here in 1990 or so. A contractor was using it as a workshop to convert an old coach into a restaurant for a client in Toronto. Wonder if it’s still around.

  2. What happened to the station?

  3. Such a shame it and the station there were destroyed.
