Well, here we are, 200 posts. Of course, simply posting links with a few lines of thought certainly helps accelerate the number of messages! I thought that for #200, I would share some far more optimistic news.
This coming week, the John Street Roundhouse restoration project will be inducted into the North American Railway Hall of Fame (didn't know there was one, neat!) in St. Thomas, Ontario. The restoration and reuse of the roundhouse is truly a great example of preservation and land use within a crowded urban setting. Anyone who has seen the roundhouse in the past few years will know how special a space it is. Congratulations!
Of course, all is not well as the Toronto Railway Museum is set to loose a huge amount of space on the site - more details here.
