To my readers:
During the next month or so, this website will be redesigned and upgraded. All the information will be retained, but there may be periodic interruptions on some pages as the work progresses. This site has been going for 10 years now - it had a major upgrade about 6 years ago, and it is now time for another. I hope that you will continue to find this site helpful for the information that is provided.
The Burlington Freeman station
In 2013 the station was moved onto private property in partnership with a local firm Ashland, Inc. Its location now is still on Fairview Street, just west of Brant Street, adjacent to the Burlington Fire Department. The Friends of the Freeman Station [FOFS] (whose aim is to raise funds to preserve, relocate and restore, and to find a sustainable use for the building) are now ready to begin interior restoration, but first of all the station needs a foundation. Memberships in FOFS ($10 annually) are available, and donations ($25 and over gets a tax receipt) are gratefully received at FOFS, 3023 New Street, P.O. Box 91536, Burlington ON L7R 4L6, and further information is obtainable at email@example.com .
The 2014 Ottawa Train Expo model railway show has been revived in partnership with the Bytown Railway Society. Check my show calendar.
