This skeleton of a shelter sits just off the Upper Canada Heritage Trail between Charlotte Street and East and West Line. It was originally built as a private train stop for George Rand in the 1800s, says local historian Jim Smith.
The Upper Canada trail follows the former Erie & Ontario railway line.
According to Smith, Rand would take the train to Buffalo every day from this stop at the back of his property. Rand owned WGR (for “George Rand”) Radio in Buffalo, as well as the Randwood Estate in NOTL.
Thanks to Jim Reynolds and Jim Smith for the details regarding this local find.
