Codys Station Tour

Wendell Lemon reports that "A tour of several old homes and the ex CPR Codys station will be held on Sunday afternoon with the few remaining CP men on site who once worked the Minto Sub through Codys, milepost 70.1. This end of the Minto sub was home to CP's last three 4-4-0s and two early diesel-hydraulics up to Apr.1962. Everyone interested is welcomed and encouraged to bring old photos and ask questions. I hope to be there with a few old pix... Codys is on the south side of Washademoak Lake on rural highway 710 in Queens County. See you there maybe."

There are articles on this in the Telegraph Journal and in the Times & Transcript.
