Snooping around Stratford

CNR’s “Big” Shop

Driving through Stratford yesterday I went past the long abandoned (for railroad use anyway) CNR shops. Its been about 10 years since I have had a look at the place and was quite shocked to find most of it missing. A fire in September 2003 destroyed a good chunk of the building, and it looks like parts of it are being torn down. I am not sure what the fate of this structure will ultimately be, there is a sign there proclaiming all kinds of optimistic possibilities, but somehow I don’t think it will come to pass.

Today I decided to grab my camera and go back and poke around a bit to see what I could find.

I put on my “urban explorer’s” hat and found a way in. What I found was shocking, and breath taking at the same time.

Below are some of the pictures I took today, keep in mind it was VERY cold, so forgive the camera shake…
