Note too the very early style train

This photograph, while believed to have been taken in
the 1950's, might well have been taken decades earlier.
Look carefully at the station walls where four ancient oil lamps provided
lighting! The lack of electric power was likely
due to its remote location to Hydro lines. A Royal Mail box is also
located next to the chalk board. Al Paterson
