Southampton mural

George Dutka recently visited Southampton, Ontario and shared a couple of photographs of a terrific mural painted on the side of one of the old brick mills. Have a look at his blog to see what I mean:

Southampton, Ontario – Mural

I have a model of the subject of this mural, which regularly plies the rails to Port Rowan. So it’s nice to see it captured in a piece of public art – thanks for sharing this, George!

Like Port Rowan, Southampton is another one of those small Ontario towns once served by the CNR that would make a terrific subject for a satisfying layout. In fact, I’ve even drawn up a plan for such a layout, which you can find on my Achievable Layouts blog.

Enjoy if you visit!

One thought on “Southampton mural

  1. I must say, Trevor, your Southampton plan is a terrific plan. I was sorely tempted…..Great memories of the Southampton Sub when it was still active from holiday visits when I was much younger. There was a Dayliner running back in the day that my Dad’s friend would take from Toronto. I remember picking him up in Southampton.
