- When I was a rather small child we would walk over to this station from our farm. The farm was on the third line and was a short walk away. My dad would light a bonfire to let the engineer know there were passengers to get on.
We would take the train to Burlington and walk down to my aunts house on Brant street. I remember being very frightened by this huge puffing monster that stopped for us.
The train, called the Peanut would go up in the morning to Owen Sound and back down at night to Hamilton.
One time when we were coming home up on the viaduct over what I think is the Bronte Creek provincial park, there were deer in the ravine and everyone went to one side of the train to see them.
The bridge did not seem too stapel to me and I remember being terrified as we crossed it. This episode did nothing to help my confidence.
What a simpler time that was
Mary E. Clare: I remember our Father taking us up to Mansewood on the gas car to pick berries. The wild roses were beautiful and we walked over to the old abandoned United Presbyterian Church.
