Long Description:
According to (visit link) the former Woodstock, Thames Valley & Ingersoll Railway, still sees about 20 trains daily. The line follows the Thames River into town from the northeast.

The website notes that where Vansittart Avenue crosses above the railroad there is good safe viewing (N43 08.659 W80 45.997). The short line, which uses Montreal Locomotive Works power, makes its entry into town from the southwest, following the road from Ingersoll. It crosses the CN on a diamond at Carew, which is readily visible from the Ingersoll Road crossing. Ontario Southland interchanges with CP every weekday and often on weekends.
