Mr. Chris F Cameron, Edmonton, Alberta sent me the following four pictures of the Maccan, Nova Scotia.
Maccan is  is located 9 miles south west of Amherst, Nova Scotia. There has been a railway station there from 
about 1904 to 1973 when it burnt to the ground.  Chris F Cameron has written four books on the small village of Maccan, Nova Scotia  covering this period of the villages history.

The Dominion Atlantic Railway (DAR)



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 

The DAR operated in the western part of Nova Scotia from Windsor Junction, outside of Halifax to Digby Nova Scotia through an agricultural district known as the Annapolis Valley. The DAR was created on October 1, 1894, by  merger of two end-to-end systems. the Windsor and Annapolis Railway (W&A) and the Western Counties Railway (WCR).  W&A which was the larger of the two, bought out the rival WCR. After the buyout there was a gap in the trackage between Annapolis Royal and Digby, The WCR had track from Digby to Yarmouth The gap was eventually closed in the early 1890s with government assistance.
In 1993 CPR announced that it was selling its entire Canadian Atlantic Railway subsidiary, including the DAR
For more details see:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Atlantic_Railway
Many of the stations on this line are no longer standing or are in disrepair. I tried to get pictures of all that were still standing or the locations on those that are gone. 

 
 
 

 

The DAR started at Windsor Junction which is
about 20 miles out of Halifax on the CNR Line
This section is the DAR from Windsor Junction to Windsor

This is the point where the DAR starts.

the station 
was built in 1884. The Old Mines Road was

This picture shows the corner where the hotel, 
the 2 stores and the railway station were.
It was taken in the mid 70's but, sadly the railway
station cannot be seen and neither can the 2nd store.
It is possible that the 2nd store and the railway 
station were already torn down when this photo 
was taken.
The "old Parker Hotel" in the background was
probably a single family dwelling by this time.

This map shows where Five Mile Lake and
Stillwater were located in relation to the 
Village of Mount Uniacke

Pam went on to say;
"We also spent a lot of precious time at our
camp at Stillwater- the head of Five Mile Lake -
from 1961 to present day.   There were five of 
us…three brothers and one sister.  Mum would
dress us up (because you wore your good clothes
on the day liner) and we would catch the train at 
the Mt. Uniacke crossing (we owned the 
Benedict’s General Store -
originally the Cole Store) and would be dropped
off on a platform in front of Herb and Roy 
Ritchie’s camp in Stillwater.  We would stay
at the camp for the weekend and then get
washed up and dressed back up in our good 
clothes to catch the day liner back home on 
Sunday evening.  Dad would drive to the
crossing about a mile down the tracks and 
back pack the food and often ice blocks for
the weekend or week depending upon the 
duration of our stay. 

I have many wonderful memories of the
railway….one of them was hearing Dad or
Mum yell out "TRAIN!!!"  They always ran
to the yard when it was train time to make sure 
that none of us or the other 30 + children in the
close proximity were on the tracks.  So you can
imagine that living in a house and having a
camp both on the tracks that we heard them call out 
"TRAIN" a lot! 

We always ran to wave to the train as well. 
I have such fond memories of us all running 
to the veranda on the front of the camp and
leaning out to wave to the train…they would
always be watching for us and give a wave
or a toot of the whistle. 
My grandparent's Eustace & Elsie Benedict's
home (now my mother's) was just in behind the
Mt. Uniacke station a bit and until the last run
a few years ago, we still went out to wave to
the train. 

Granddad Benedict worked on the railway as 
well.  I will look for any pictures that we may
have as I think there is one of him beside the
trolley.  There was also a siding (?) at this 
crossing where the bunk trains used to park
in the summer for the railway men to sleep
and eat in.   It was always a treat to get a
warm cookie from the cook…
I think his nickname was Cookie."

The Nova Scotia Central, from Middleton to Bridgewater
and Lunenburg, was a long time building. The statutory maze of its various reorganizations as it wended its way towards Bridgewater over the South Mountain is remarkable. But only thirty years after it was first proposed, and barely ten years after it was completed, the Nova Scotia Central became part of the Canadian Northern, eventually Canadian National. The route was operated for passenger service into the 1950s and for freight until abandoned in the 1980

A closeup of the statuary over the main doors of the 
VIA Rail (formerly Canadian National Railways) 
Station in Halifax, depicting their holdings in railways
(left side) and ships (right side). At the base between 
the statues is the Nova Scotia Provincial symbol.
At one time, the empty space in the middle may have
been designed to hold a clock.

The station was built in 1928-30 as part of a hotel and 
railway station complex, consisting of the adjoining 
Hotel Nova Scotian, now the Westwin Nova Scotian,
at the foot of Barrington Street just outside the
downtown commercial core.  http://www.thewestinnovascotian.com/

The NSR was taken over by the Government of Canada in 1867 as one of the terms of Confederation. In 1877, a new federal Crown corporation, the Intercolonial Railway (ICR), opened a magnificent new terminal railway station at the foot of North Street, south of Richmond and much closer to the city's downtown.

CP station in Fredericton N.B
The station looks pretty bad but the roof 
makes it look worse than it actually is. The overall structure is sound and plans are in
the works to make it into a liquor store.
Jul 2007
The N.B liquor store on York street now
occupies what used to be the VIA Fredericton railway station.
The passenger train first arrived in
Fredericton in 1869 and ran on and off in
the city for over 120 years. It’s only the 
recent generation that’s never seen a train go through the capital of New Brunswick.

CNR Summerside PEI, street side
Built in 1927, it was situated adjacent to the railway tracks that were laid through the town in the 1870s. The structure replaced an earlier one that was no longer suitable. The CNR withdrew its rail service from PEI in 1989 and the building was closed. In the 1990s the local Rotary Club led a successful campaign to open the building as the town's public library.
It has since been fully restored thankfully and turned into the city's public library.
