It's not a pretty sight at Mile 31.5 Soo Sub. For the old station that dates back to construction of the Algoma Central Railway, the 1902 structure does not appear to have much time left. A blazoned wound cut right across its front, left from when the platform canopy collapsed in 2014. The siding still hints at where the canopy protected passengers from the suns rays. The eaves are disintegrating and the roof has begun to give way. The lower windows have been board up for years while the upper floor windows have been smashed by vandals. A few banners hang on her north and south sides of a promised renewal which seems to have failed. The place still invites whomever or whatever would like to visit its messy, decrepit insides. No doubt an invitation for a quick and easy cleanup....
