Walkerville Train Station

A neat link sent to me from Tim Swaddling, yields this image of the Walkerville Depot from when it first opened as the CN station. The photo is taken from the CN Archives, which were donated to the Canadian Science & Technology Museum for public archival access – all of which can be found here (CN’s collection is “CN Images Of Canada”).

While the new station is rapidly progressing, this station isn’t long for our world, but while it is typical 1960’s architecture, this is the last remaining active train station from the pre-VIA rail era. When it goes, the last link to the old days of rail travel will leave as well.
