Wabash Coal Tower

Category Exploration Date Status Province / State Country
Rail Sites Abandoned Ontario Canada


According to what little I've been able to gather, this coal tower was built during the winter of 1943-44 at the request of the Wabash Railroad. It was apparently only in service for seven years until the Wabash Railroad converted to diesel engines.

Personal Commentary: 

I saw pictures of this tower posted by a fellow explorer and decided it would be worth a stop if I found myself in the area. This past weekend I did, indeed, find myself in the area. We parked the car and took a quick hike down the tracks. My camera bag over my shoulder, drone case in hand. I took a few pictures from the air, and a few more from the ground. In all, it was a fun place to look around.
