Now this adds some flavour to what I’m doing…
I was just Googling about and I came across a blog that includes a four-part feature, with photos, of the mixed train that served Port Rowan (and Port Dover, and points between Simcoe and Hamilton). The pictures were taken by Bruce Murdoch, a photographer for the Hamilton Spectator, who rode the train in June of 1953.
Hamilton to Port Rowan to Port Dover and Back
Enjoy if you visit.
(BTW, I was happy to find the photo below as part of the series. It shows the Lyn Valley water tank with a MoW track speeder pulled off to the side. I’ve mentioned this photo before but had no online source for it – now I do. This will make for a great vignette on the layout!)
