Caption: Hidden in plain sight - here's one for the Station guys,a photo that took some planning and time to execute. When I Saw Arnold Mooney's photo of Waterdown North in 1980 I looked on the map and saw a structure close to the tracks.. could it be? Yes... it is! Waterdown North still stands to this day, used as offices for Compass Minerals. You can't see it from the road, it's blocked entirely by trees. And sun angles require a Northbound at the right time of day. For more info on Waterdown North, visit the Old Time Trains entry http://www.trainweb.org/oldtimetrains/CPR_London/stns/waterdown.htm. This is the only station from the Southern Ontario Pacific extension of the CPR Hamilton to Guelph Jct line remaining of course, and one of Four stations remaining on the Hamilton sub. (which are Waterdown North (CP), Hamilton Hunter St (TH&b), Smithville (TH&B), Welland (PC/CR/TH&B) - Honourable Mention is Aberdeen which was once part of the TH&B Welland sub.)
