  1. Great photo….as you don’t see too many shots from this end at the old Grimsby station. I too remember when I found out about the demise of this station, reading an article in the old Hamilton Spectator paper. Never knew the station existed, missed opportunity as at that time I lived approx. 45 minutes away from Grimsby too.
