VIA #40, with Budd built coaches,  rolls by the GTR built Port Hope station


   In normal times, a busy place for Toronto commuters with daily stops by VIA trains 651, Saturday 655, 54, 48 and Sunday 648
   

   Currently served by trains 45 and 55.

   Interesting: CN had slated the station for demolition, the town council called upon various interests including the Ontario Heritage Foundation, and in the mid 1980's the station was restored to the original 1881 appearance  


    Interesting: the Cameco spur in the foreground see regular use


    in the weeds     


    rider platform needed
