By March 30, 1896 the line was open to Welland with stops in Fenwick and Chantler. The Fenwick station was located on Church Street north of Foss Road. It shipped freight and passengers. Passengers traveled from Toronto to United States. Most of the freight was from the nurseries and canning factory in Fonthill.

During the war, prisoners of war were shipped through here to camps in northern Ontario.
