Here is an old station that has seen many railroads come and go.  Yet the old Hagersville station still weathers all these years of change, for there was once the Hamilton & Lake Erie (on the left) and Michigan Central which this building faced. From GTR the line from Hamilton became CNR and currently is operated by the Southern Ontario Rwy. The old MCRR which eventually became Canada Southern (and taken over by CN/CP) was lifted sometime in the mid 1990s.

  1. Smith !!! Are you getting your age mixed up with yer old man?

  2. That’s awesome. But I’m older than you :) LOL

  3. Correct Steve, even saw a meet once. The towns folk were none too happy. I still recall a guy waiting at the crossing yelling at the crew on the caboose. I’m old.

  4. Egads Rob – that’s a great memory though, I imagine your dad took you down there to see CSX on the Caso? I wish I saw that stuff but I had other interests :) Spent my time in the GTA otherwise.

  5. Great shot. I have a soft spot for Hagersville, going there as a youngin’ hoping to see the approach-lit signal on the CASO come on. Maybe CN will use it again later this year. I can’t see them using the former restaurant turned office that SOR currently uses.

  6. This station was used for SOR until 2014 or so and I have photos of it with FEC/Rail America banners during the Fortress days.

    It is languishing now but imho still has power….

    SOR has relocated to a strip mall/gas station in Garnet since
