The remains of a old railroad Roadhouse and concrete bridge leading to it .This is where the old locomotives went for maintenance and repair . Nothing here but just bush but back in the day was a very busy area. I first spotted this place in a 1934 Google Earth view .So today being a nice sunny day decided to take a walk in the area .I was totally surprised to see there was still remains of this place and a fully in tacked concrete bridge leading to it. I can't wait till spring thaw to see more of it . (This was posted with my permission...OAP)

kev7716 Welland's not the only town with 1934 views like this . Here is a larger Rail Roadhouse in Niagara Falls . You can even clearly see the turntable to guide the cars into it . Sad to say tho Salit Steel has completely flattened it. :(

ground state The stone bridge is great! I think we have to do exactly what you started here: carefully pic through Welland and do a full inventory, area by area. There isn't much in the database, and for a predominantly canal-and-train-based old city, it should be loaded with "stuff".
