Transportation thumb 225px right Old train station (in 2006) (Image:Old station Bancroft ON.JPG) Bancroft lies at the intersection of two provincial highways, Highway 28 (Ontario Highway 28) and Highway 62 (Ontario Highway 62), with several other inroads allowing access to the city. Bancroft is served by a small airport, Bancroft Airport, with a 2,200 foot (670 m) crushed gravel runway, located immediately adjoining the town. The airport is operated by the Bancroft Flying Club and is freely available to the general public. Due to high terrain near both ends of the runway, pilots typically use a non-standard circuit, following the York River valley through the town for departing from runway 12 or landing on runway 30. The Central Ontario Railway arrived in November 1900 connecting Bancroft with Trenton. The railway went through the Musclow-Greenview road and extended behind Birds Creek through a back trail (which is now used for cyclists and fourwheeling) and continued through the town eventually going further away from the town at the 'Y' road division. The line was closed in 1975 and subsequently removed. The Bancroft, Irondale and Ottawa Railway connected Bancroft with Kinmount, Ontario. The line was purchased by the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway which became part of the Canadian National Railways in 1918. The line was abandoned in 1960. The old train station in Bancroft served as the Chamber of Commerce and Mineral Museum until it was condemned in 2008. The Chamber, Mineral Museum, and Art Gallery relocated to other sites in the town. In 2011, the old station was moved onto a new foundation; http: www.tedfordhousemovers.com Tedford_House_Movers Photo_Albums Pages Bancroft_Train_Station.html it is now restored with an addition at the southern end of the building to house the Bancroft Gem and Mineral Club’s museum http: www.mcdougallminerals.com blog tag bancroft-railway-station and a caboose, which is not currently in use. http: moosefm.com chmss news use-of-the-caboose Media Print *Bancroft Times, an independently-owned weekly (5000 copies, paid circulation) founded 1894. http: www.thebancrofttimes.ca *Bancroft This Week *North Hastings Advertiser Radio * FM 97.7 - CHMS (CHMS-FM) ("Moose FM (Vista Broadcast Group)"), hot adult contemporary (Adult contemporary music) * FM 99.3 - CBLV (CBLA-FM), rebroadcaster of CBC Radio One * FM 103.5 - CKJJ (CKJJ-FM) (rebroadcaster of UCB Canada), Christian Music Television *Channel 2: CIII-TV-2 (CIII-TV) - rebroadcaster of Global Television *Channel 4: CHEX-TV-1 (CHEX-TV) - rebroadcaster of CBC Television Climate The company operates eight retail stores, located in Bobcaygeon, Minden (Minden, Ontario), Bancroft (Bancroft, Ontario), Lindsay (Lindsay, Ontario), Uxbridge (Uxbridge, Ontario), Huntsville (Huntsville, Ontario), and Peterborough (Peterborough, Ontario) and Barrie.
