Geocache Description:

This should be a pretty easy cache to find, but the area can be busy so you will have to be careful. Also, don't run off too quickly. When the station is open, you are invited inside to have a look around.


The Canada Southern Station (CASO Station) in St Thomas Ontario was the largest of 31 railway stations built in Ontario during the 1870s by Canada Southern Railway Company (CSR). The station was remarkably large for a town the size of St Thomas (the community didn’t become a city until 1881), however, the building needed to be big enough to accommodate both the town’s passenger station (ground floor) and the corporate headquarters of CSR (upper floor). The building’s grandeur was, and still is, impressive. The 1882 publication Picturesque Canada reported that the station was “one of the finest in the Dominion, and reminds one of the large structures in Chicago and New York.” Today, it has been almost fully restored and houses private offices as well as the North American Railway Hall of Fame. It is also a popular venue for meetings, weddings, and other celebrations.
