Dave ColemanGreat webpage! Do you have any pics from the Suspension Bridge or Dain's final days?January 15, 1999

James MancusoAs usual, you have referred me to some most excellent material pertaining to the St. Catharines area on your website which I regard as the Niagara Region's finest site available. Keep up the good work, Paul.January 17, 1999

TomThis is a great site with a real nice mix of info. A web cam would be another nice feature.January 20, 1999

Randy PlunkettHey Paul, what a huge site! I like the maps, your site is very well done, it must have taken a long time to build it. I hope I can get mine as informative as yours.January 21, 1999

Rick GrevilleI grew up on Harold st. in Stamford,and frequently watched a switcher (I think, CN) pass by. This is like a trip home. As Arnold said "I'll be back". January 26, 1999

Dave ColemanThe train schedules on the website are really helpfull on the webpage. Paul,do you have any pics from the new tunnel at Pt.Huron?January 30, 1999

Thomas SajnovicNice site Paul, Luv most of the work done on this site. It really shows a lot of work and time that has been put into it. Keep up the good work.February 2, 1999

Bert MonsterAn employee of the former TH&B and CP RailRoads in Hamilton & Toronto I was delighted to find this nostalgic & informative site. As former traffic manager for the Ontario Paper (Now Donohue) Co.,Thorold the history you covered of both past and present industries in the Niagara Region is incredibly accurate and informative. Please keep up the valuable work.March 10, 1999

Jack ElliottI was pleasently surprised to find your web site. I helped to erect fence in the Harly area in 1984, and I also patrolled the spur regularily in 1994. This site brings back fond memories. Yours Truly, JACK ELLIOTT, Track Inspector, Goderich-Exeter Railroad.April 19, 1999

Ryan MillsHey man. We met last Friday in Niagara Falls. I remembered the web site address, and I came to check it out. I think you should have at least one clear picture of yourself on the site. People probably are interested in seeing the man behind this wonderful train site. Keep it up. May 22, 1999

Aaron B.Hey I work at the Fort Erie railroad museum. I like the page. It is neat. July 2, 1999

Lex ParkerThank you for sharing this very informative site with us. I am impressed with the research you have done and the information you have provided to us. A great resource for the local RR history. July 9, 1999

Mark HymersA great site. The Niagara Region was and is fascinating for railfans. My favourite memories at Bayview besides steam were TH&B passenger trains with their red coaches and gold lettering. Having roots also in the Windsor area, my favourite 'freight action' was the Wabash followed by the 'Central'. There was something special about that double track high speed line of the Canada Southern. I am still puzzled why Conrail or its current owners wouldn't consider it today as a fast short cut across Southern Ontario for US intermodal and other traffic. Yes the Windsor tunnel might have to be altered or replaced. I also have pleasant train watching memories at Waterford station where you could see a mix of NYC and C&O freights. But today's railroading can be exciting too! All the best and hope to visit lineside again soon.July 16, 1999

Jack Van BuekenhoutRailroading in central Canada is quite different than here on the West Coast. Your site bring out that different perspective of high density populated areas compared to much lower populated prairies and west coast. Keep up the good work. July 30, 1999

Bill GoodI was a sales rep for BN out of Toronto 1970-80. Your page brings back many happy memories. Although a railroader I am still a fan. So pleased to see a note from my friend, Bert Monster. We had many pleasant times together.August 6, 1999

Ron JohnsonI'm from Hamilton so I can relate to a lot of your photos. Keep it up. I hope to see you trackside at Bayview Jct sometime.October 17, 1999

Gary BradnamIn the last few months I have searched web pages all over the globe, and I find yours to be one of the best and most informative. Your list of links was excellent. Keep up the good work, for a person needing help on a project, with no prior experience in railroading, this site is what I needed.October 18, 1999

Peter SmythGood job with the page Paul. Since I'm from London I know quite a bit about the area and I know many railfans who come through the area like railnuts,j.alex lang,Ken Gentskze, Brendan Kelly,Ken Girard (who is no longer a railfan sadly), and many others. Nice pics of CN and CP!October 23, 1999

David B. Allen, Jr.Excellent site. Nice work.October 24, 1999

Mark / Chris SmithVery nice webpage. Also since I'm new to southern Ontario railfanning I wondered how many trains run across the international bridge in Ft.Erie?October 31, 1999

Nicolas DestoursUs Dutch people just learned to speak and read English so this website is useful to us. We enjoy looking at trains. One time we were railfanning in Rochester, New York and we were at MP 367 and a guy named Alex Lang walked in front of the camera of the movie I was shooting and a train with BNSF and HLCX puwer was going by us. This is not right, but we musn't miss work today, we have to go back to working in the shop.November 11, 1999

James MancusoI think this is a big improvement over the already excellent site that you had previously. If I could rate it higher than a ten I would give it at least a 20. it is really that good.December 28, 1999
