The "on Ramp" that you refer to in the article is in fact a vestige of the Old radial rail line that once ran from Terminal Towers downtown all the way to Downtown Brantford. The road alignment at that intersection was the place where the tracks crossed queen and Aberdeen and then continued northeast toward Hess Street. There is a house and an apartment building now where the tracks once traversed the block between Queen and Hess.

This line and one from Dundas, Oakville and Vineland once brought people and produce right into our once vibrant downtown.
