Waiting For A Train Through A Northern Town

Parry Sound Train StationIs it possible, or desirable, to go back in time? This road trip is taking us to many interesting places, most new to us, but some familiar spots too. The beautiful Muskoka town of Parry Sound has a major claim to fame with Bobby Orr. But we have a more personal connection to it. Many years ago (back in the days of Kodak film) I photographed the town’s heritage railway station. That photo became the art work on the back cover of the album “Train Through a Northern Town”. ┬áIf you own that album, look closely at the back picture. So much has changed in our world since then. Film is gone, and sadly, most of the passenger trains too. But for today, at least, we can still visit the long abandoned waiting room.
