Compared to Jason Noe's photo  Palmerston was all but quiet in this cool wintry scene 9 years after CN removed the rails. The station was beautifully restored, and sits well preserved still overlooking the grounds that once housed the expansive yard, roundhouse, freight shed and numerous other railway structures that disappeared through time. Thankfully, CN left some of the tracks in place, at the front of the station for the town's annual handcar races. And, the old iron bridge was also spared. But, as peaceful as this scene is, a hint of grief remains at the memory of the trains that once rolled through Palmerston.

  1. Very interesting image. Neat to see the changes and buildings already built where the yard tracks were.

  2. @Noe….agreed. I think the biggest changes happened behind us, at Main Street where the crossing once was (mentioned in your Main St. photo of the rail train).
