The Village Depot
GTR station built 1902
Mile 27.4 CN Grimsby Subdivision
Track One Limited
Opened in May 1977 it used much of the station for a number of boutiques as well as additional ones (including food, ice cream etc) located inside several pieces of rolling stock all given T.O.L reporting marks! A caboose (CN 78765) and 5 CN box cars one of which had been converted into a bunk car. Each held one or two boutiques. It only lasted until December 1979 ended due in part to seasonal nature of its operation as well as its location which while close to the QEW required drivers to get off and back on to visit here there being little else anywhere around the area unless you travelled the old Hwy 8.
