Description
Built in 1898 this train station served as a hub where local electric trains met with the steam engines here for longer distance travelling. A maintenance shed was built in 1900. This was usually the only place to send telegrams. These stations are rare as repurposing buildings wasn't an option years ago, they just tore it down, like the huge Union Station in Toronto. They are protected now though and the main hazard here are TRAINS! A covered area at the near end looks as though it didn't make it over the years. The benches at this near end[west] and the wooden sidewalk along the tracks, Galt name on roof, are gone. The gable on the track side is gone. The building behind the station and huge stack were replaced by a similar building as the station. A maintenance shed between the tracks is gone. The houses across the station are the same. No inside shots as it was just renovated ten years ago from original ...............................................................................................................................................................................On May 2nd 1956, Cambridge had it's worst rail disaster. Around 10:30 pm two trains collided on the tracks on the rail bridge over Water Street. This was only about 200 feet from the Galt Train Station. Two men died in the crash, William Palmer and Tommy Watson of the railroad. Fourteen men survived on the fast freight train which crashed into the slower train. The slower train were negligent in communication with the Galt Station and other train.
