E&N Victoria Station Abandonment

The railway station in Victoria BC was located by the east 
end of the Johnson Street Bridge in a slightly seedy portion 
of the city,  at 450 Pandora Avenue serving as the southern 
terminus for the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway.
It was designed by architect Yves Roy and built in 1986, 
in a style keeping with the historical nature of the area.
The E&N takes its name from the original section of track
running between Esquimalt (6 km [4 miles] from downtown
Victoria) and Nanaimo. The first E&N train ran on
March 29, 1888 between Nanaimo and Victoria.
The CPR purchased the E&N in 1905 and extended the 
tracks to Courtenay a distance of 225-kilometre (140 mi) 
on Vancouver Island. VIA Rail took over their CPR's
Malahat passenger train operation in 1979. http://www.flickriver.com/photos/47911905
Leaving in the morning and returning early evening, trains
entered directly into the Johnson Street Bridge,  built in 
1924 and known locally as "Big Blue" or 
the "Blue Bridge" (because it was painted that colour to 
match the primer paint so corrosion wouldn't show through). 
The bridge had two separate bascule sections; one for the 
railway and the other one for the road, each operated
individually.
In a bascule bridge, one end is raised while at the other
end, heavy concrete blocks act as counterweights. 
The link below shows a view across from downtown. http://cindystephenson.wordpress.com/2009/08/12/two-
cities-two-bridges-two-approaches/ 
Awaiting return to service after eventual rail upgrades,
VIA suspended service indefinitely on March 19, 2011
and stored its Rail Diesel Cars at a roundhouse in Victoria
West http://www.flickriver.com/photos/47911905@N00/
4870374705/ on the other side of the Johnson Street 
Bridge for about a month, hoping for renewal of service 
from one of the Vic West communities. With future
uncertain for the immediate roadbed upgrade, VIA sent 
the Budd cars northbound, into more secure storage at 
Nanaimo. Rail service had been threatened with 
discontinuation several times in the past but passenger 
service kept alive due to petitions by residents. 
A temporary bus service was provided by VIA during
the interruption but it averaged 10 passengers or
less per run. http://www.viarail.ca/en/trains/rockies-and-
pacific/victoria-courtenay
With this bus service proving unprofitable, it was then
decided to terminate altogether rail passenger operation 
on Vancouver Island. VIA closed its station on August 12, 
2011 and shipped all its Budd cars off the island from
Nanaimo, the following November.

In June 2012, this brick sign at Store Street and 
Pandora Avenue still indicated the parking entrance 
to the Victoria passenger station. 
Look up the station location in Google Maps.

The actual "End of Track" in Victoria is marked by a 
railway tie at the bottom right hand corner of the photo. 
Before 1992, the track used to curve left on Store Street
past this point for a few blocks to reach numerous 
customers and a small yard. 
With reference to the flowers on the bottom right, find out
what the landscaping was like at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/msdwilkie/5622793625/

E&N station end in June 2012, with the bridge on the

a new bridge by 2016; to the left of the old one,  which 
will then be removed. 

It will be a bascule geared design and not fitted with rail. http://www.johnsonstreetbridge.com/the-project/design/

A three-quarter view of the Johnson Street Bridge in June
2012, with the rail span now removed. The station was
located on the left side in the photo. On Friday, February 24 
2011, the largest single-lift crane barge in Western Canada 
lifted the
rail portion of the 88 year old bridge and its 500 (metric) tonne counterweight (about 551.3 US tons) its foundation,  lowered 
the load onto the barge and it was floated away to be
scrapped due to severe corrosion. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/thewest/Barge+arrival

The rail side of the Victoria E&N station, shortly after track removal. It belonged to the City of Victoria and had no 
heritage value since it was only erected in 1986. Bids were
sent out to have the building removed: http://www.vicnews.com/news/163452396.html which attracted
only one which met requirements. The station roof and other 
building parts will be recycled somewhere else in the city.

Coming up to the Visitor Centre at Craigellachie BC 
with the Rocky Mountaineer eastbound, on a rainy
May 11, 2009. The Centre  features a gift shop and interpretation of the Canadian Pacific Last Spike, 
joining East and West on the morning of November 7, 
1885. 

It seems to be a great gesture from the custodians, to 
have installed the platform in the foreground, enabling
visitors to photograph trains from a higher vantage point
rather than from the fence.

The Esquimalt & Nanaimo Station at Qualicum Beach BC,
in May 2003.  It's a very picturesque area, with the town 2 blocks from the station and a wide shallow beach a short kilometer away.
The station was constructed in 1914 and is representative of two-storey CPR stations. It is located within a large park 
area, incorporating ex-Baldwin Locomotive Works #4 in 
open air under a roof,  next to the station. (BLW 4, a 2-8-2T built in 1925,  was once used in logging operations for MacMillan Bloedel and subsequently displayed at
various places on Vancouver Island before
coming to Qualicum Beach).

Not much had changed from the previous photo on
May 16th, 2015; as the Qualicum Beach station was
revisited.
Now called the Qualicum Beach Digital Media Studio 
the building is being used by artists and pictures using 
techniques such as oil, lithography, collage etc., adorn 
the walls.  There are plans to use the tracks again but
for now, the roadbed is in pitiful condition.

E&N (Esquimalt & Nanaimo) Duncan's Crossing Station, 
Duncan, British Columbia

The station was established around March of 1912 at what
was then Duncan Crossing, named after William Chalmers
Duncan who farmed in the region.
The Wikipedia entry states:
"The Duncan Railway Station is located in Duncan,
British Columbia. The station was a stop on Via Railís 
Victoria Ė Courtney train service, which ended in 2011.
It is located on the Southern Railway of Vancouver 
Island main line."

The line is often referred to also as the E&N, which is 
referenced elsewhere in your picture collection of 
Vancouver Island sites.

The building now houses the Cowichan Valley Museum, 
and is listed as being at 130 Canada Avenue.

For information, while the Wikipedia entry states the 
rail service ended in 2011, work is ongoing by a few local 
groups to resurrect the service and the line. Unfortunately,
any resumption of this service will not include the
"blue bridge" crossing in Victoria, quite a few references
to which are also included in many of your entries.

CP station in Fernie, BC. Built in 1908, after the town 
was nearly destroyed for a second time in four years 
by a raging fire. It's the last surviving first-class CPR 
station of its design. It was renovated between 1986 and 
1990 so it could be used by the general public. It sits 
across the street from the CP Cranbrook Subdivision, the
line it once served. Today, its known as the Arts Station, a public art gallery displaying local arts and crafts. It also 
has a café beside the gallery.

The British Colombia Railway (BCOL) station in 
Squamish, in the late 70s or early 80s, photographed 
from a train.

In its glory days, the station about 40 miles from 
North Vancouver was an important terminal for the 
Royal Hudson steam excursions and RDC
passenger service.

This is the station at Bennett, British Columbia.  Bennett, British Columbia, Canada is an abandoned town next to 
Bennett Lake. It was built during the Klondike Gold Rush
of 1897-99 at the end of the  White Pass and 
Chilkoot Trails from nearby ports of Skagway and 
Dyea in Alaska.  Shortly thereafter, the railway was 
extended to Carcross, Yukon and then up to Whitehorse, Yukon.  This station has been refurbished over the years 
and is now used as a maintenance of way headquarters as 
well as a bunkhouse style food stop for the White Pass
and Yukon railway passengers as they wait to meet the westbound train.

The cars in the "South Hole", the track on the right,
would be the cars for the train that used to run south of Revelstoke to Arrowhead. There it would connect with
the CPR boats that plied the Arrow Lakes. This station
was built in 1905 and demolished in 1978 after the
construction of a newer building at the same location

CPR Glacier Station

Constructed in the same style as Lake Louise Station further east, this CPR station, served Glacier House 
around 1886. Glacier House was a meal stop for passengers 
in the Rocky Mountains where railway grades were too 
severe to justify the operation of dining cars (follow the
tracks to the right) . Photo taken from the rear platform
of the Rocky Mountaineer train on May 11, 2009.
Situated about 40 miles east of Revelstoke BC in
Glacier National Park at Mile 85.5 of the CPR Mountain 
Sub,  the station ceased passenger service after Glacier
House was destroyed early in the 20th Century the but
it is still used by CPR Maintenance of Way crews, as the
area gets about 7 feet or more of snow per year. Just east 
of there is the Connaught Tunnel and the famous 
Stoney Creek Bridge. A very nice postcard view of a
train at the station and Glacier House can be seen at http://www.cardcow.com/c/65661/transportation-trains-

Rocky Mountaineer Station on May 10, 2009

The Rocky Mountaineer a delightful 2-day "all-daylight" 
trip with an overnight stop in Kamloops BC. While a bit expensive, all meals and overnight accomodation is s
upplied, acccording to class purchased. Deluxe passengers
on the GoldLeaf are assigned a/seat in one of the domes; 
with free access to the rear gallery anytime, as well as
superior sit-down meals in the dining car.
RedLeaf passengers sit comfortably at tree level in former 
CN "Daynighter" cars and enjoy meals at their seat. 
The train travels alternately on CN and CP track. Dozens 
of tunnels are encounted and freight consists are certain to
be seen across the river within the Fraser Canyon, as well
as many meets an adjacent track throughout the trip.
There is a running commentary of nearby landmarks

The station at Port Moody BC was built by the CPR
in 1908. It was the second railway station in the area
but in 1945, the railway moved their station closer to 
town but still operated at this location until it was 
officially closed on September 25th, 1976, when the
CPR discontinued their passenger service.

It is now a museum operated by The Port Moody
Heritage Society and there are several artifacts and photographs as well as the 1921 CPR sleeping car 
Venosta on the property. http://portmoodymuseum.org/about_us/history/

Mount Stephen House at Field BC in 1953, it was quite a structure, and was used in its last years as a CPR YMCA bunkhouse for train crews. This picture was taken by
Walter Kot CPR locomotive engineer.  This hotel was in service from 1886 to 1963 The structure at Glacier
was just as big and grand.

These large hotels that the CPR built were out of 
necessity, after the railway was built. The climb from 
Field,  British Columbia to the Continental divide of 
the Rocky Mountains at Stephen was 4% grades, 
and the passenger trains could not haul a dining car, 
so the hotels were built at Glacier and The Mount 
Stephen House at Field BC. When the CPR built the 
Spiral Tunnels in 1908, the Problem with dining cars
was solved. I'm not sure when they tore down the
hotel at Glacier, the Mount Stephen House at 
Field was torn down around 1954.

Before Pacific Central Station became an intermodal 
facility for trains and intercity buses, it was the western terminus for Canadian National and Amtrak trains.

The building, at 1150 Station Street at the western edge
of downtown Vancouver just past Chinatown, was built in 1917-19 for the Canadian Northern Railway 
(the ancestor of the CNR);  to compete with the nearby Canadian Pacific (Cordova) station, also shown on this 
page and repurposed for multi-use, which was nearer 
to the  downtown core.

In 1991, the former Canadian National Station building
was declared a heritage site, including the neon sign.

intercity buses. Up to 2005 Rocky Mountaineer trains 
also departed from Pacific Central but they now leave 
from their own station a couple of blocks away and 
covered on this page.

The building was designated a heritage site by the City of Vancouver in 1991

In 1993, Pacific Central Station was redesigned to accommodate intercity bus passengers and the 
east side of the building is now the main Vancouver
terminal for Greyhound Canada, as well as a bus
depot for Pacific Coach Lines and a few others.

VIA Station Nanaimo BC

Built in 1920 by the CPR the Esquimalt and Nanaimo 
Station at 321 Selby Street to replace an earlier station.
It  has been in continuous operation ever since and is a classic example of the type of station erected in mid-size communities, early in the 20th century. 
The baggage/freight area is on the left and the passenger waiting room on the right.
The stationmaster's living quarters were upstairs. 
VIA took the station over, circa 1979 but an arson fire seriously damaged the building in 2007.
Plans were afoot to restore the station, however most of 
the track is now resting on rotten ties and the RDC car
were taken off the island. Abandonment has been 
threatened several times but service is planned to be eventually resumed

Following a devastating arson fire to the E & N 
Nanaimo station in 2007, funds were raised from the
public and the building was restored in 2012 with 
plans to eventually again use it as a railway facility 
after the track is 
upgraded. 

In the meantime, the part on the right houses an Irish pub-style restaurant called Fibber Magees. 
This view shows the main entrance at 
321 Selby St. on 23 May 2015.

 The E & N tracks can be seen at the lower left and, although the line is in poor condition in some areas 
of the line, some form of commuter rail service is
being planned between Victoria West and Nanaimo
after a roadbed upgrade.

Fibber Magee meanwhile uses the left side of the

"The Station" restaurant in Kimberley BC, from an
undated photo taken by Massey's father-in-law, back in 
the mid-80s, during a rail fantrip with members from 
Calgary.
Built in 1901, one of the CPR Kimberley station was used to register ore trains to and from the nearby Sullivan Mine. Decommissioned in 1968s, the building was then turned into a restaurant. After it closed down, it housed offices of the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce, before it was demolished around 1990, after offers to build a Shoppers Drug Mart on 
the lot outweighed benefits of saving the building.

Caboose CPR 436778 standing next to the building, was 
saved by the Kimberley Caboose Restoration Committee
and donated to the Kimberley's Underground Mining 
Railway, a seasonal tourist operation http://www.kimberleysundergroundminingrailway.ca

See my caboose page http://yourrailwaypictures.com/Cabooses/ for more details.

VIA Endako BC Bunkhouse and Station

Endako is a tiny community located about 2 hours west of Prince George via Highway 16. It is mile 0 of the Endako subdivision and is supported by both a molybdenum mine 
and the CN Railway. The building in the photo is really a bunkhouse, but the platform outside the building serves 
as a flag station for Via Rail's Jasper-Prince Rupert Line (aka the Skeena). Although the community's small, there
are three tracks by the bunkhouse/station and there's
even a wye for turning trains around.

CP Station Museum at Agassiz BC, April 2003

The CP station was lifted & moved to a location North 
of the CP tracks where it became a museum. Then the
VIA station was installed in almost the same location.
After a given time someone decided that the CP station museum should be brought back closer to the town core where it would be more accessible to the general public 
& tourists. Itís a nice location to visit. 
A park like setting with lots of parking & many local amenities.

The date of for the initial move of the CP station or the construction of the VIA station, so maybe a viewer 
can help with that part.
