Woodley probably named after 3 families
with the last name Wood, who lived in this Township,
but could also be after the Village of Woodley in Berkshire England

Shown on the CNR railway,
halfway between Benson and Lampman,
originally this was the Grand Trunk Railway
which went into full operation in 1913.

First thing built here was a Coal Dock,
which stored the coal for the Steam Engines.
Coal would be dumped from the dock
into the coal tender, behind the locomotive.
