    Did you see the former Milwaukee Road depot in downtown?

    Did you spend any time down on the waterfront? If so, there is a block signal in front of it. (Ex-SP I believe.) It it the the hobby shop now. It was the replacement for the original depot. The tracks were right in the street and there might still be a sign of them showing in the pavement. Across the street there are some benches, where you can sit and watch the Victoria ferry come in. Usually quiet. Nice just to sit there and relax.

    I stop there every time I am in the area. If the weather is decent, sitting on a bench across the street and taking in the view of the harbor is very pleasant. This was the replacement depot for the original SPA&W depot.
