The future of the 1800s Bayview railroad site

Forgot to post this up sooner!

Late in August, the media and historians in Ottawa were abuzz over the unearthing of a well-preserved turntable and roundhouse by Bayview Station and the City Centre building. The archaeological dig revealed some fantastic old railway infrastructure older than Hintonburg itself that had been buried for 133 years! And then just a quickly as it was exposed, it was covered back up, much to the disappointment of many. The Kitchissippi Times received several questions about what happened, and so I dug into the process, and what the future plans were for the site, as part of a Q&A feature. You can view that story at:
