Sudbury Bus Depot

I decided to take a look at where good buses rest, get cleaned and fed, and where bad buses are cannibalized for the others.

These two were located right across from the main garage. There was a surprising amount of activity, but I suppose that's to be expected from a bus line running 7 days a week.

Interestingly, however, either no one took notice of me prowling around these derelicts, or perhaps they did, but just didn't care. In any event, it made for a fun shoot.

This particular generating station is located on the Wanapitae River and entered service in 1925. The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario acquired the plant from the Wanapitae Power Company in 1930. The station contains two generator turbines.

The Wahnapitae Power Company owned two other generating stations in Coniston and McVittie.

Originally constructed in 1901, this bridge is the only stone arch bridge in North America having masonry arches. The bridge was completely restored to its original state in 1984 allowing modern vehicle loads.
