An interesting mural on the side of a store by the tracks in Lansdowne Ontario (21 miles west of Brockville), depicts a steam-powered passenger train passing the old Grand Trunk Railway Lansdowne Station, which would have been located just across the street along the present-day CN Kingston Sub. There was a severe CN train wreck in front of Lansdowne station on February 25th 1962 where one of the derailed boxcars involved smashed into the end of the station, damaging it badly enough to result in the structure being torn down that same year.
