A work train dumping ballast on the former TH&B is passing the TH&B Smithville Station, set back from the tracks but still somewhat workable into a shot. I'm into Mooney territory here... but I must digress that I lived not too far from here in Grassies for a bit. I can't say I lived there for long (just summers by that time in my life as I had half moved out for university) but watching the trains nearby sure help me enjoy documenting it years later. and I always joke about my Stepdad calling into the New Goldern Village (still there) in Smithville and ordering some 'chicken nuts' with our pickup and of course, I had to go get the food as they did not deliver out of town. Never forget that. The Chinese food was delicious.
