56486 Heritage Line
Straffordville

Railway Crossing - For 90 years, a rail line ran through this farm. The station was located nearby and the station master lived across the road. When he died, his daughter, Edith Allen, looked after it until its closure in the 1980s. The line took tourists to the beach and hauled Ohio coal conveyed on the  Ashtabula ferry from Port Burwell to Tillsonburg, largely for use in CPR locomotives.
