  1. Not a Tempo, a private car behind the power – appeared to aluminum / non Budd construction with a black painted window band the length of ht car.

  2. The station is now in Tottenham, Ont. just east of the tracks as a residence.

  3. I’m wondering if the late Art Merrifield was the agent there at that time. Any idea if the station was demolished, or was it moved to become a residence?

  4. Good ol’ CP Canadian. Hmm, is that a CN-VIA Tempo car behind the power?!
