I absolutely love attending events at this vintage train station. So full of glamorous history, keeping the old and updating what they can.

At one point train stations were the heart of the town, probably more relevant than airports today. The city of St. Thomas was a very important railway hub and this station was one of the busiest in Canada. Nowadays the station is almost abandoned. I...More
