    have you got Panko and Bowen's books?
    There are 3 pictures that may be bits of the station you want:
    In NS&T Electric Railway in Pictures, page 38 and page 141.
    Page 17 has a picture of the line being torn up, with what might be the back side of the station.

    [One of the first traumatic experiences of my life was finding out that people would actually destroy a railway. I never got to ride the NS&T; due to illness, we missed the last day.]

    Hello David,
    Yes I do have that lovely Book #499 edition(found it on the ebay )
    But the pixs on pages mentioned only hint at the station.
    I noted what you said about never riding the NS&T, My friend Andy grew up in the area and rode it a lot, and it realy is a passion of his to find a picture if the station.
    So I thought there must be one out there somewhere, but as of now no luck.
    David are you now in Perth??
    Tell me more about the Perth Exeter R/W.Company
    and Esquesing & Chinguacousy RADIAL Railway?????
    (email is on the i.d.)
    Thanks again.

    Chris;) ;)

    The Perth & Exeter was named by my wife after the towns we grew up in (I was in Perth to age 12). Depending on my modelling interests, it may represent a line across southern Ontario (an extended version of the Ontario & Quebec), an major amalgamation of a number of British lines, or a small Scottish line with ambitions.
    The current layout runs from Exeter (Ste. Dayle's) to Perth (High Level) with a London branch at St. Mary Axe (pronounced Simmery Axe).
    The Esquesing & Chinguacousy Radial Railway is a proofreader's nightmare. It's an interurban line northwest of Toronto, named after townships in Peel and Halton counties.
    (I think the Perth and Exeter may have a cross-river connection with the Maberly and Tayside.)
