As many of you probably know, the Canada Southern Railway Station in St. Thomas is getting a lot of attention getting restored to what it was like in its glory days. They have been hard at work, and I got a tour of it today, and thought I would share some photos I took.
The station as viewed from the end of the platform.
The lady's waiting room. The large doors would take you out to the platforms to board trains. The men's waiting room was a separate waiting room with its own reference section.

The kitchen. Stainless steel wouldn't have been used at the time, but weddings and special events take place at the station, and a kitchen up to health regulations must be present for caterers.
The upstairs hallway. Notice the elevator to the left. This was not a feature in the station before renovations took place, but needed for accessibility standards.
The bathrooms even have their own charm. I like the stall doors.
The new entrance. The glass doors are a nice touch.
