Bringing history to his P Fast forward more than 50 years it's a summer day and MacInnis, now 59 and his mother gone, has moved the station to his own homestead in Burlington where Woodleigh Replicas once stood.
While repairing a part of the coal room wall, he spots his grandmother's name among the many names carved into the tinder dry wooden board. Not every train station was a grand piece of architecture. The so called flag stops, like the one at Elliotts Station, were very simple structures. Like many of its kind, when the Elliotts station was decommissioned in the 1960s, it was moved to a local farm to take up a new life as an outbuilding. That's the end of the road for most buildings like this, and after 50 years as a storage shed, the old flag stop had deteriorated to where it was barely recognizable ready for demolition. But the old Elliotts station always held a fascination for MacInnis. In 2014, he bought it and arranged to have it moved to his property in Burlington. There he brought it back to life, with a new roof and shingles, but its original door and windows. The Heritage Award was burberry scarf uk outlet recognition of his efforts to restore this small, but important example of both the railroad and architectural heritage. The Elliott family was a staple of Pleasant Valley in days gone by. They had a wood mill, a grist mill burberry outlet men and a pond at the flag stop where the station stood.

He has painted the rusty red shingles to their what stores carry burberry original color. His mother, Cecilia MacDowell, who tended its fires all those years ago, died six years ago at the age of 90, before MacInnis even got the idea to restore the station.
