Aultsville Train Station and Locomotive 1008

Grand Trunk locomotive 1008 is an 8 wheeler 2-6-0 Mogul of the E10a class built in 1930 by the Canadian Locomotive Company (CLC) at Kingston, Ontario. Coach 3474 was retired in August 1957 and was soon after depated (sic) to the Ontario St. Lawrence Development Commission. The train stands on a section of the original Grand Trunk Railway track that was left in place at the time of the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway in the 1950s.
The Aultsville Train Station was constructed between 1866 and 1889 for the Grand Trunk Railway Company. Originally located in Aultsville, one of the villages that were lost as a result of the flooding during the creation of the St. Lawrence Seaway, the station was donated to the St. Lawrence Parks Commission and relocated to its present location in the late 1950s.

French:
La Commission des parcs du Saint-Laurent reconnait avec gratitude la contribution du comité de la sauvegarde du train en temps et en argent pour la collecte de fonds et l'aide apportée au projet de restauration de la gare Aultsville.
