Station looks real, but it is a replica. The name seems real, but it is fictional. In actuality this newly built Victorian style building houses the Visitor's Centre in the Dundas Conservation Area off Governor's Rd in Dundas.  This is a park most railfans notice as they are roaring up to Copetown en route to catch some train. Next to the station on the left is the remains of what was once a spur off the TH&B Waterford Sub which passed this structure on the right. All there is now is enough rail to house this old CN Oil-Electric unit (privately owned) and according to CTG an X-CP coach in behind. Also on the property is an old iron Crossbuck, looking pretty good.....probably repainted many times.:o)
Sulphur Springs "station" is relatively unknown due to its' location and low publicity, but it has been photographed many times, having shown up in movie props and a few commercials over the years. The whole area makes for a very interesting visit.

  1. Jakob…If I ever get an answer to your query I’ll be sure to post it here. I thought originally the siding was to accommodate coaches of tourists that came out here for Mineral Springs nearby. Anyone know of a 1920′s hotel in the area?

  2. What was the TH&B spur used for?

  3. Looks nice, doesn’t it? But it was just made for the station (in 1978).

  4. I’m curious if the order board is a railway original or just made for the station.

  5. I should have added (forgot) to the caption that this structure was just 5 years old when the photo taken.

  6. Yes, it is still there. See? Now I gave you something to do.:o)
    Thanks, Paul; for proper run-down.

  7. Another great photo Arnold with a great description of what once was. The CN baggage car is ex-CN 15844 Gas Electric Doodlebug NSC built April 1931, and the coach is ex-CP business car CP 3 Manitoba built in 1929.

  8. Now it makes sense to me. Is the doodlebug still there?
