Item Type:
Photographs
Description:
This photograph shows a group of passengers waiting outside the Paris Junction Station. The tracks carried trains from both the Great Western Railway and Buffalo-Goderich Railway lines, and both companies shared the station. This photo shows the third rail on the tracks, which was used to allow American freight cars to be transported.

Two of the signs in the background read "W.R. Custom Office" and "Baggage Room".

This image was printed on page 225 of At the Forks of the Grand: Volume I by D. A. Smith.
Notes:
The copy of the photograph digitized was flipped horizontally from its original orientation; this online version has been corrected.

The third rail for American cars was installed in 1866, and removed in 1871 when the rails were replaced with a new gauge. Since the third rail is visible, this photo was taken between those dates.
