A CN C44-9W and SD75I on a freight pass by the recently burnt Strathroy Station at Mile 20 CN Strathroy Sub.

The 117-year old structure was built by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1887, but out of use for years before the fire that doomed it. Three local 12-year old boys were later charged with arson.

  1. What a sorry sorry sight.

  2. Another example of why historic buildings should be better preserved. Nothing but an ugly VIA shelter and a big open area today.

    Great shot Bill. The engines add to the scene.

  3. Ha, the chimmney is still standing.

    Nice picture.
