Public Notice!



John accepts the donation of James Arnold of framed Rules and Regulations of the Grand Trunk Railway, for permanent display at the 1906 GTR Burlington Junction Station.  The railway was established in 1852 by British investors, and eventually grew through construction and mergers to a system of almost 10,000 miles of trackage.  In 1923 it was merged into the Canadian National Railway system.  In the heyday of rail, more than 40 trains daily passed through Burlington, but passenger and freight trains are still a common every day sight in this busy rail corridor!
