First of all, I would like to thank Bob and Patti Duncan for helping me around Whitby, Fireco, Jonben, Willabet and Coal City. Their support made this trip possible and certainly more enjoyable. If you want to know about the history of Whitby please see the link to the main Whitby page at the bottom or click here.
2004 was my second trip to Whitby. This time, I focused on the rails and the front of the camp which is really the first thing a person seees when entering Whitby. Thanks to the worst flooding in years, much of what some had told me was no longer in existence or gone was easy to see. This series of pages will be dedicated to what is STILL left of Whitby and I hope it demonstrates why it is so vital to recall and
WRITE DOWN the memories you do have.
IF you drove up to Whitby and stopped at the church, this is what you would see looking left to right. The next few pages will be this view in part and detail

Note the sign post. This is where there would have been a railroad sign. I miss those. The last I recall seeing one in Whitby was in 1979.
