CPR McAdam Station NB

Watercolor… this… the third and final expansion of the Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR) Station and Hotel in McAdam, New Brunswick, was completed in 1901. It is also the third distinct location of a railroad station erected in the town. This impressive structure was designed by Montreal Architect Edward Maxwell in a massive “Chateau” style, and it became a National Historic Site of Canada in 1976. Canadian Pacific gave up the station to VIA Rail in 1978, and VIA Rail discontinued passenger service through McAdam in 1994. Presently the station and hotel complex is jointly owned and maintained by the Government of New Brunswick, Parks Canada and The McAdam Historical Restoration Commission and sees use as a museum and reception venue. Short line, New Brunswick Southern Railway (NBSR) runs through these days. I visited and wandered around the premises in 2016, but did not go inside, as there was a large dining event in progress. This is the West facade, viewed from Saunders Road.
