  1. Oh interesting – I didn’t realize that. Thanks Steve, I’ll check out that article.

  2. This was the location of an interchange between CN/TH&B and HRER.

    “Following the abandonment of the Hamilton Radial Electric Railway on January 5, 1929, the HSR
    continued to operate that railway’s carload freight switching service, picking up cars at Irondale
    interchange from the CNR and the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo Railway (TH&B) and delivering them
    to the Firestone Tire & Rubber Co. on the Radial Railway’s east-end steam plant spur”
