A couple of years ago I posted a shot of CP St. Marys with CP 8147 laying over. This image, taken 4 years after the last, is worthy of offering due to the fresh snow and sunshine over the quaint building. This is the sort scene one just does not see any more.  Such is progress. :o( The St. Marys sub, from a connection to the GALT sub at Zorra has been taken up.

  1. Thanks, Jacob. Good of you to keep alert to this sort of thing. Many farms have old RR structures for implement sheds and the like.

  2. After coming across some archives apparently when the station came down in 1980, some of it went to the Wellburn area for use as a drive shed on a farm.

  3. Thanks Jacob. I was in St. Marys last fall, didn’t see the station, but it could have been moved as many have. Disappointing that it is gone.

  4. Demolished in the ’80′s. Now an empty field/lot. When my relatives lived in St. Mary’s prior to ’65 my uncles would hop the CP freight back into town when they went fishing. Another hangout was just upstream on the Sarnia bridge (Forrest sub bridge). When fishing (or swimming/diving) from the bridge if a train came try’s climb over the side onto the limestone pillars.

  5. I don’t know, Marcus; but I am sure someone on this group has the info.

  6. Nice image! Has this station been demolished?

  7. Nice shot Arnold. I haven’t seen very many photos of this station over the years.
