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.

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.
