Ontario has grain elevators too! Here's one of the few remaining old style elevators left in Ontario located beside railway. Ayr is steeped in rural roots but is quickly becoming a bedroom community.  After T69 performed a lift of grain cars off the Pit spur the train is blasting off with 3 GP38-2's for London. Above the purple wildflowers at right is what remains of this elevator complex, here's a Mooney pic from 18 years ago to compare the elevator before it was repainted. Most of the complex in Mooneys photo has now been torn down.

  1. I saw the fencing yesterday, so you can’t use or park on the roadway anymore as it’s all private property. Seems development is about to occur. I also bet they put in major permanent fencing here too but we’ll see.

  2. Tx. Really, I wonder what they are going to do here.

  3. Nice shot Steve.

    When I drove by the old Schneider’s entrance two weeks ago, it was now all fenced off.
