Ruins of the St. Thomas Roundhouse

Published

on

There are many fascinating and exciting places to explore in Ontario. Many locations rich with history and mystery. On this day we were in St. Thomas, Ontario doing a little Urban Exploring of it rail-way heritage. Tragically the St. Thomas roundhouse was demolished about 25 years ago, a developer thought the property would be better suited for a strip mall, it never happened. What a waste of a fantastic opportunity to create a heritage site and museum.

Today all that remains are ruins and concrete foundation but sill very interesting to explore. As you wander around the field that is now overgrown with weeds you can find many traces of its railway past.

A satellite photo show how the site of the roundhouse location looks today.

Old Abandoned Decaying Train Station

I posted this abandoned train station earlier this summer and recently did a revisit of the location to get some more photos as the rumour grapevine has it that this old abandoned train station will be demolish soon. While I was there I did notice that a large telephone pole at the rear of the building has been removed and some of the wire disconnected. This could be preparation for demolishing the old decaying building. Here are the photos from my most recent visit.

The location of this old abandoned train station can be found on our Abandoned Places in Ontario Map.
