Over to Port Dover
To Port Dover for a small but select smart car gathering at this Lake Erie resort. We stop by the old Lake Erie & Northern railway station, now a municipal depot with few clues to its railroad heritage. Smart cars are assembled down at the dock. We adjourn to Knechtel's for a fishy lunch. We acquire some LED side-lights and a gizmo that allows you to operate the power windows with the ignition off. Glenn tries to tempt us with some "snake oil" - diesel conditioner- but we pass. We check out the old station at Waterford on our way back to Kitchener, our base on this trip. There is much evidence of old railways that once criss-crossed this part of Ontario.
