Amhersburg Tool House

This photo is a bit of mystery. I’ve asked around amongst those who know far more about both the county and about train, and no one has any insight about this.(I didn’t check in with “Rob” a regular reader and rail expert, so hopefully he’ll weigh in here.)

There is a possibility after talking with Bernie Drouillad, noted transit historian, that it may have had somthing to do with the S.W.&A line to Amherstburg, rather than with the railroad. He noted the white stripe painted on the pole might have designated a stop, and it also appears that there is a sign tacked on the pole as well.

Maybe someone out there can come up with some info?

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
