Via Rail Eastbound at Stoney Point – c. 1984

Today’s photo taken by Al Gradwell comes to us once again via Tim Swaddling. Tim is helping to digitize a large number of older rail slides, and where possible and with the photographer’s permission, he’s sharing ones that he thinks may be of interested to the readers of this site.

A neat shot of the eastbound Via rail train passing the long gone, Stoney Point station. There is no confirmed date on this one, but I would take a guess of about 1984. Maybe someone out there remembers the old Stoney Point station. When did it come down?
