    ok, you can't see much of the building on this one, but you can see the spur, and as you can guess from it's condition, it's not used anymore, or so I hope :)

    Fillmore city hall. Looks very much like Robins building, doesn't it?

    Spitfire, nice pictures.

    Did you manage to get a shot of the old gas station on Lakeshore raod just before it joins the QEW in the west end of Toronto?

    I think there is a similar one down beside the Channel 47 building.

    Those were the Gas stations with the turrets.

    How about taking a shot of Casa Loma and letting our southern friends see it.

    Funny you should ask!!! :D :D :D :D
    Those stations were called Joy. My brothers and I got a big kick out of them when we were kids. They were so tiny and usually kind of run-down.

    Rural Alabama Depot

    This old Seaboard Air Line depot is still standing in Fort Davis, Alabama. The line was abandoned nearly 20 years ago.

    This one is my favorite. Sure, it's seen better days, but it's got .character .

    Chris, I only wish I had a shot of the other side of that building.

    It is built on a corner, the back side is the width of the block and has a giant mural painted on it.

    Right now I live in Huntsville, in the heart of Muskoka.

    If you get downtown Toronto, check out the building, it is on Front Street, east of Union Station.

    Maybe Val, can get us a shot of the mural. I believe he sil lives in TO.
