Making a station stop at woodstock, the trailing engine on #71 peeks around the corner of the handsome Joseph Hobson architect/engineer designed station at Woodstock. One person would get on and the folks on bikes would dissapear into the bushes by the tracks. Joseph Hobson also famous for being lead Engineer on the 1890 Sarnia tunnel having been the Chief Engineer of the grand trunk. The station looks about as good as the p42's - needs paint.

  1. Does VIA still use it?

  2. Absolutely. There should also be a station agent inside. (not many stations have agents anymore either around here..)

  3. Actually I think the agents position was abolished here too. Like Sarnia it opens 1 hour before train time and 30 minutes after.
