Here's the quaint little station at Maple, before it became a marked GO stop. A rural station out in the countryside. But oh how times have changed.
Commuter service was introduced in 1974 with the start up of the Toronto-Barrie run.
This line was originally Ontario, Simcoe & Huron railway company. This station was built after 1905, when the first one was destroyed by fire; the result of a 'corn-field meet' almost in front of the old building.
South end of the Namesign shows "Toronto 18 miles" and the north end, "North Bay 197 miles". Interesting feature unique to Grand Trunk, I believe.
For those interested, this would make a good subject for "time machine".

  1. Ahh….when you say “time machine”…and countryside I think if my last visit on a grey…dark…strikingly different contrast scene where Joni Mitchell’s words echoed in the vast urban sprawl “Paved Paradise….put up a parking lot”. ;)

  2. Some scenes in a railway-themed episode of The Littlest Hobo (“Runaway”) were shot outside Maple Station around 1980 or so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPnTLpjSdHg
