Details: M&O Junction is named after its namesake in Ottawa. The basis of this module is a junction between two railways that was well used in its prime. In days gone by the junction bosted a station to interchange passengers between the two railways. With passenger service no longer offered, the station has been demolished (before the local historical association could get it designated as a historic building) due to a fire that destroyed a part of the building. The interlocking tower is no longer in service as CTC is now used on this portion of the railway. The coal/grain/flour dealer has long closed his doors and the building is in such a state of disrepair, it is ready to collapse soon. the only building still in use is a small hand car shed complete with handcar for the loacl track gang to carry out minor repairs.
