Our train has just passed through the
CPR Dorval station on the Montreal-
Toronto mainline, about 1972.
Dorval is situated in what is called  Montreal's 
"West Island" near Montréal-Pierre
Elliott Trudeau International Airport. 
While a Centralized Traffic Control
tower can be seen in the background,
the old  semaphore signal  is still 
attached to the station.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Railway
_semaphore signal

The CN Montreal-Toronto mainline ran parallel 
to the CPR at this point and its semaphore can be seen on the right, through the poles. 
When VIA took over the Montreal-Toronto 
route, it used the CN tracks, not this one.

The former CPR station at Bordeaux in 
northeast Montreal, which served for 70
years or so in commuter service, on the
Montreal-Ottawa via North Shore (of the 
Ottawa River); then Montreal-Mont 
Laurier (a skiing and cottage area in the Laurentians 
about a 3-hour drive north of Montreal). 
Rail Diesel Cars were assigned to these
runs from about 1950 to abandonment 
around 1979, 
when VIA took over all CPR passenger
service. 
This photo was taken around 1980, after 
the 
CPR station had been removed. Bordeaux
never received much passenger traffic. 
Service on this line actually started in 1882 
and the tracks are still in use by CPR and 
the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT; English: 
Metropolitan Transportation Agency), 
which operates a daily commuter service 
from a nearby replacement station, now
called Bois de Boulogne on the
Blainville-St Jerome line.

A small pocket timetable (4 x 6 ½ inches)
from VIA Rail, valid October 31, 
1976 – April 23, 1977 
identified trains as VIA CP in red or 
VIA CN in blue,
before everything was finally absorbed 
and a few routes eliminated; one of which 
was the Montreal -
Mont Laurier,  having served skiers and
summer vacationers for 90 years.

Bordeaux shown here is the 5th station,
served passengers in northeast Montreal,
while Westmount, Montreal West and Park Avenue (also called Jean 
Talon) catered to those more the west.

50 years ago the countryside became mostly farmland and low rolling hills after leaving Bordeaux. Today, a lot of Laval 
(St-Martin Jct on the timetable) a few
miles north is fairly well built-up but
Shawbridge is still the start of
"cottage country" and Mont Tremblant 
is a renowned centre for winter sports.

The Canadian Pacific Railway route of 
"Montreal-Ottawa via North Shore"
had fairly been in place since the early 
1800s, first with steam and diesels, then
with self-propelled Rail Diesel Cars, till
VIA ended the service about 70 years
later.
Bordeaux was then a key station out of 
north-end Montreal at Mileage 15.5, 
after trains leaving Windsor Station, 
made a large semi-circle through 
Westmount and Montreal West before
proceeding northbound. CN Meanwhile
with its electric traction had cut under 
Mount Royal to reach an area about a
mile away from Bordeaux

The station served commuters and
vacationers escaping to the Laurentians, particularly on ski trains. After the 1960s, Bordeaux started to be less and less used 
and was removed from the location shown 
above and not replaced when commuter 
rail took the same track.

valid from October 26, 1975 to
April 24, 1976

The CPR St-Jovite Station in the Laurentians, north of Montreal, looks abandoned in this 
view from an old 1970s postcard, judging by 
the semaphores, now removed.  St-Jovite, 
which has now merged with the village of Mt-Tremblant, is situated about 130 km
(± 80 miles)north of Montreal.

The first train arrived at St-Jovite in
1893 after the CPR purchased the Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa and
Occidental Railway (QMO&O) and extended the line. First a colonization railway, the line started to serve skiers when Herman Smith Johanssen
(aka "Jack Rabbit") introduced 
cross-country skiing between railway 
stations. For many years thereafter, 
"Le P'tit train du Nord"
(loose translation – The little train to 
the North Country) carried skiers in 
winter and cottagers in summer, first 
by steam than by RDC.

Somewhere on this page is a CPR 
timetable for the Montréal-Mont-
Laurier train; eventually a Dayliner 
Rail Diesel Car from Montreal city 
centre. St-Jovite was a major stop.
CPR abandoned the line in 1981, due
to the fact that people would now rather drive to the area

In 1990, the rails were removed and 
turned into a hiking trail, while the
station was purchased and transported
to a nearby location, then completely spruced up and turned into an Italian restaurant with a railway theme. View photos of the refurbished station at http://www.restaurantantipasto.com/en/
One of the views shows the station in the 
early 1900s.

Situated off the Island of Montreal and 
about 16 miles in straight line northwest
or about a half-hour driving distance
from downtown Montreal, the old station at Ste-Thérèse QC was built around 1900, 
to serve CP freight and passengers on
the former Montreal-Ottawa and 
Montreal-Mont Laurier using steam
first and then diesels for freight and 
RDCs for passengers. The station was
finally by CP for lack of freight traffic 
and VIA didn't feel that the passenger 
loads would be worthwhile as it reorganized
its commuter services.

In former days, Ste-Thérèse served light
industry, such as a leading piano factory
(Lesage); the largest industrial snowblower 
maker in the world (Sicard) and it also had 
the only auto assembly plant outside Ontario, before it too closed its doors. Farmers, ski enthusiasts and vacationers also patronized
the line a great deal until just after WWII
when private vehicles became the prime 
mode of travel between Montreal and the Laurentians or Montreal and the
Gatineau Hills. Area commuters working downtown Montreal were almost non-existent.

In his view dated late 1990s, an early AMT
push-pull operation now serves the
Ste-Thérèse on the Montreal-St. Jérôme
line and the schedule is not yet quite firm.
Later, an all-weather platform, situated a 
few yards from the other end of the train
will be constructed on both sides of the
track and commuter service will become
frequent and regular. The old station sign,
just left of the telephone booth has yet to be removed.

Massey F. Jones collection
Rather than destroy the building after
decommissioning by the CPR, it was 
recycled into a relay station for the Rogers Communications
since a tower already stood right alongside
the station. This view shows the back of the 
station and part of the new Agence 
Métropolitaine deTransport or AMT
(in English, the "Metropolitan
transportation agency") platform across
the tracks, for inbound trains into Montreal.
AMT is an umbrella organization that 
coordinates commuter rail servicesin the 
Greater Montreal area.
Service is frequent and by general opinion, extremely punctual. View the schedule

Windsor Station/Gare Windsor, looking north on a very muddy Windsor St., corner of St-Antoine in 1904. 
Windsor Street south of Dorchester (now René Levesque Blvd) was renamed Peel Street/Rue Peel in 1968. 

The granite building was not only the Montreal 
terminusfor the Canadian Pacific Railway but also their Canadian headquarters, till then named CP moved its entire operation to Calgary in 1996 and changed its name back to Canadian Pacific Railway. 

Behind the early Montreal Tramways streetcar, we see a faint outline of the elegant Le Windsor, then and now,  a historical nine-story structure, offering palatial splendor with a gold-embossed lobby, six restaurants,
two ballrooms, concert hall and 382 luxurious guest-rooms http://lewindsormontreal.com/ . View an old-time picture at: http://www.imtl.org/montreal/building/Hotel-
Windsor.php

Today, Windsor Station is not connected to any track and has been developed into a hotel and retail complex, with access the Lucien-L'Allier metro (subway) station which is below the station building and a connection to the Bell Centre, home of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windsor_Station_
(Montreal)

Submitted by Massey F. Jones from a very large photo on his wall.
A classic shot of the CPR Windsor Station/Gare Windsor in Montreal; looking southwest from Peel Street, late 1970s. The main entrance has been under the wide canopy since 1889 (close-up shown elsewhere on this page) but there was a smaller entrance down the hill (also shown on this page) at corner rue St-Antoine & Peel. Passengers then proceeded to the concourse one floor up, by elevator.  In its last days, Windsor Station was the terminus for commuter trains to the West Island but they now leave from Gare Centrale/Central Station, about one block east, as does VIA Rail.

In 1996, all train service ceased and tracks were removed, as the CPR moved its headquarters from Windsor Station to Calgary. The building was then decommissioned and repurposed into an office building and also gives access to the Lucien-L'Allier metro (subway) station which is below the station building and Le Centre Bell next door, home
of the Montréal Canadiens hockey team.

Part of the canopy is still visible late summer 1970s showing of a CPR commuter waiting to depart for the West Island. Massey was boarding an RDC on an adjacent platform. 
In former days, it's presumed that trains came under the canopy, right up to the concourse. Nothing is left of either the canopy or the tracks today. 

The train  was accessed through doors shown
in the concourse picture. On March 17, 1909, CPR locomotive No 2102 jumped the stop on Track 7 and ran into the concourse. There 
were 6 fatalities. It is probably one of the reasons why no more trains came under the canopy.

Looking south in the CPR Windsor Station/Gare Windsor
concourse, 1975-1980. Today, a lot has been modified as the station has changed role.

To the left was the men's washroom and
further up the ticket office and waiting 
room.  Still further up was a newsstand 
and at the very back, the very large statue "Angel of Victory", a  war memorial in Windsor Station to the employees of 
Canadian Pacific Railways who 
perished in the First World War. 

Access to the platforms was through the 
doors on the right, manned by the conductor
for that train. As evidenced by the daylight coming through, the original canopy which stood over the platforms had already been removed when this picture was taken.

Except for the building itself opened in 
1943, all train boarding is now underground 
at the CN Gare Centrale/Central Station in downtown Montreal, seen here during the c. 1975 festive season

The station is connected to several other buildings, 
including a leading hotel. It also gives access to the Bonaventure Métro (which in turns connects to well 
over a hundred underground shops and most 
areas of the city), as well as Amtrak, 
VIA Rail and AMT.

Another view of the Montreal CN Central Station/Gare Centrale concourse, early 80s. Fairly visible are the 
track indicators (17, 18) made of solid brass.

When ready the indicator was raised and a roll sign
was inserted inside by the conductor or trainman. 
Passengers then passed through brass a waist-high
gate before descending to the platform after a ticket
check by the conductor and/or trainman.

The concourse is still very much in daily use.

A CN Deux-Montagnes line commuter train, is 
ready to depart below the Montreal Central S
tation/Gare Centrale concourse around 1975 and will shortly pass through the electrified Mount Royal Tunnel.  In use since during WWII, the boarding platform was always very Spartan with low ceiling and harsh lighting. While this model of railcar long gone (some to museums and short line railways or scrap), the platform is still in use daily.

The trailers shown here do not have a pantograph but there is an an Electric Multiple Unit (CN 6730-6739), is at each end, providing traction, light and heat during the trip from the overhead wire through a pantograph. The commuter train sets were never uncoupled, except for maintenance. Frequent 
departures were on the schedule.

CPR Station, Quebec City It now serves as the
VIA Rail Station.

It was popularly referred to as Palais Station; in timetables 
it was usually referred to as Union Station(because of being used shortly after opening by  GTR, NTR, 
Quebec Central trains as well as the CPR).

 Another street view of the Gare du Palais; at 450 rue de la Gare du Palais in the lower part (Basse Ville) of Quebec City, taken in the
early 70s.  At that time, the ornate park in 
front of the station had yet to be built.

Built in 1915 by the CPR, the station is
similar in design to the Fairmount "Le Château Frontenac", in the upper part of the city 
(Haute Ville).

The station continues to be used daily for
VIA Rail "corridor" trips to Montreal via Drummondville and also serves as a bus
depot for a local company. The structure
to the right at #330 is at present a federal government building (HRDC).

The CN/VIA station in downtown Chicoutimi,
now called Saguenay.  The station agent was located on the second
floor at street level and passengers then
had to proceed downstairs to board the train. 

Chicoutimi,  about 140 miles north of
Quebec City, was "end of track" for CN and 
then VIA until the late 1980s.
In order to turn the motive power around, 
(usually a single passenger diesel), an air
operated turntable pit (shown on my diesel page),was situated within the station area. 
The original dockside station started to be 
used around 1893 when Chicoutimi was the
hub for all activity within the region. After a
few minor modifications, the present building, 
now mostly lacking passengers and
freight closed around 1987, when VIA 
transferred end-of-rail to Jonquière, a few 
miles up the line. 

After closure, the station was turned into a multi-service building, all track removed and 
the area along the river, turned into large 
green space. The Saguenay River on the
left, is a deep water fjord, regularly hosting
large cruise ships during 
the summer. They turn around at La Baie
(formerly Port Alfred), a few miles further. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Baie,_
Quebec, which is also the terminus where
Rio Tinto (formerly Alcan) gets bauxite 
ore gets unloaded from ocean vessels and transported by the Roberval Saguenay 
Railway to become aluminum. RS operates
about 5 miles north of downtown Chicoutimi.

still in VIA Rail service in 1987, at: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/33445078

station, taken in the late-70s from a nearby

After it was vacated by VIA, the building was greatly

station, the rest is an add-on.

mile from the Chicoutimi station. Notice the bilingual crossbuck, then in use all over 
Quebec.

The locomotive was built by General Motors
as an FP9A (Ser# A 10500) and transferred to 
VIA 6521 in 19878, being scrapped in 1984, 
unlike others in the
series which were rebuilt.

abandoned by VIA in 1987.
