C.N.R. report


The former restaurant in the C.N.R. Gravenhurst station has been removed and converted into office space; the interior of the station has been otherwise modernised, as have many C.N. stations across the country, with new counters, lighting, etc. The spur into the ice storage yard has been removed and the property is now for sale. Previously removed were the engine shed and station building at Muskoka Wharf, although the track to the latter facility is still used to serve a nearby lumber mill.

With the summer schedule speed-up and the trackage up-grading on the entire subdivision, more of the express now handled by rail will be subsidiary, Hoar Transport.

Railways: C.N.Rys.

Stations: Gravenhurst, Muskoka Wharf
