CN 5506 and 5010 with train 435 pass the old Tecumseh station enroute to the Boat Yard in Windsor. The Tecumseh station was built in 1854 and was the telegraph and post office and later had the only telephone in town.  It was used to transport tanks, trucks, and jeeps in WWII. The station was used until 1967 and was moved to the nearby Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village in 1976.
