Palmerston, Ont. 2020

Palmerston, Ontario railway museum June 26, 2020.
It has been 23 years since I last visited Palmerston, Ontario which once was the hub of the lines north. On my visit the station museum was open which gave me a chance to see how the restoration turned out. The ceilings are very impressive and a nice grouping of displays are there to view. I was the only one inside other than a young girl that's summer job is to run the museum. The grounds are really well kept with the large section house moved from across the road and resided. There are three pieces of equipment on display along with a steam engine down by the main street...George Dutka

CN 81 is well kept and on display along the main street. The station museum is located back by the water tower.
The view from the overhead walkway. What a great way to have been able to watch the action in the yard back in the 1950's.
The walkway comes down next to the station. This large section house has been moved from the wye or about were the white van is seen in the background. It has been resided. The last time I saw it, insula-brick was the siding.
On this awning the side roof beams are actually supported by two pieces of light rail.
Note the rail used as supports. The rail joiners are still in place.
A look north along the remaining trackage used for hand car races. A good look at the overhead walkway.
The interior has a wonderful wood detailed ceiling.
