From 2008 to 2020 a roofed platform sat of the north side of Dundas St west abut 40 meters from Pacific Ave. Commonly referred to as the Junction Train Platform it was used by my many for events and as a local meeting and relaxation space for the community. Regular users were the Junction Arts Festival, as well as the local BIA, The Junction Farmers Market, and other community organizations, as well as people using it as community meeting place.
Over the years the platform had come to called the Junction Train Station, however is actual name was CENTENNIAL TRAIN PLATFORM. The land was owed by the building owner who owed 2968 Dundas Street West the 3 story office building at the south north corner of Pacific Ave and Dundas Street West.
The buildings creation was championed by then councillor Bill Saundercook and stewarded to completion by Bea Mozdzanowski his Constituency Assistant, and Michael Menegon the creative director of the Junction Arts Festival which was run by the JUNCTION FORUM FOR ART AND CULTURE FOUNDATION.

The train station was removed for a new apartment development in 2021.
