  1. When you stand at the crossing in Grimsby, Jacob, it is hard to imagine how lively it used to be here. But then, that could be said all up and down the peninsula. And everywhere else.

  2. Very true. It’s so grown in where the freight shed used to be you can barely tell anything was there.

  3. On a side note, can anyone tell what is in those gondolas? Looks like old tires.
