Bill, Arnold, and station fans I don't have good news - Bill just last week posted This great shot of Ingersoll GT station in the final years of it's heyday, I'm going to guess in the 80's or early 90's the large GT built Ingersoll station was traded for the shack to the east, and once CN MOW forces abandoned this building in the mid 2000's, and CN crews stopped calling out of the portable placed to replace the station (Around 2010 when OSR took over CN CAMI runs) this only accelerated the rapid decline - the roof has clearly given way and in late December, CN erected this fence around the building. An image speaks loudly and I waited for VIA 72 to pass by, thankful I could photograph VIA's latest scheme by this old girl one last time. I won't hold my breath to see how long into 2019 this structure survives. There were rumours coming out of Ingersoll a brewery/brewpub wanted to move/save it - still not too late but it'll probably have to be moved brick by brick. The interest in this building by the locals was rather tepid.

  1. Sorry to bear bad news :( I have plenty of photos.. spent a LOT of time here over the years. Nothing beats a nice quiet station and 50-60 MPH trains blasting through town. then you’d be sitting here.. hear “CN Detector, 55 no alarms, speed seven zero” and sure enough NS 327 is about to blast through and blast did they ever.

  2. At this point it would be easier and cheaper to build a replica.

  3. My gawd. It is fenced now? That IS the end. :o (

  4. Such a shame, it should have been protected years ago :(

  5. I’ve heard it’s any day now
