I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.

Oops, I mean the Kingston and Pembroke Railway station, built in 1884, but the rail line started in 1872.

That is Kingston City Hall built in 1842, George Brown was the architect. The County Court Office is a couple of km. to the west facing a huge park.

I remember when they were not there, and I remember the fuss about them being moved, and you may note that they do not fit in this locality. However, I do not have the written references. Queens University can provide the details, they were from the main campus.

And, as you know, this bridge is now blocked to traffic. A great rail fanning spot!

Lovely sky, spring is coming to Canada

Interesting building and history, like :)

Thanks for the info. I will incorporate it into mine.

Actually, the Canadian Northern Railway built this line in 1913. Canadian National Railway/VIARail Passenger service was discontinued in 1979. Freight last ran through in 1994 and the track was lifted in 1997.

Glad to share the photo, just give credits. Have you seen the other railway photos I have on Panoramio? I have 52 ghost railways of eastern Ontario now. PEC and COR are just 2 of them.

Location is in Georgetown (Halton Hills) Ontario in industrial area there. Very unusual to have palm trees. Have not checked if they have survived last winter. Adjacent picture with "elm tree" taken from parking lot in this picture.
