Photographer's Note

Parmi les sept gares construites par la compagnie de chemin de fer du Grand-Tronc sur le parcours Qu嶵ec Rivi鋨e-du-Loup, deux gares subsistent encore aujourdhui. La gare de Saint-Pascal-de-Kamouraska illustr嶪 ici a 彋 d嶰lar嶪 gare patrimoniale en 1992. Cette gare est parmi les plus anciens b漮iments ferroviaires avoir 彋 construits au Qu嶵ec et au Canada. Construite en 1858, ce b漮iment de forme rectangulaire en ma蔞nnerie comportant 2 rangs de brique jaune compte un 彋age et demi. Au centre de la toiture fortement incurv嶪, on y retrouve une lucarne fronton. Il y a g幯廨alement quatre ouvertures sur la fa蓷de principale r廧arties de fa蔞n sym彋rique. La principale composante architecturale locale, demeure le larmier cintr qui prot銶e les voyageurs des intemp廨ies. La gare et la remise adjacente maintenant disparue, cot 4500 $ l廧oque.

Built in 1858 at the cost of 4500 $, this little railway station was declared heritage railway station in 1992.

This is the scenery viewed from a eastbound train going toward Rivi鋨e-du-Loup (Qu嶵ec), Halifax (Nova Scotia) and/or St. John (New-Brunswick) . I placed in the workshop the scenery from a westbound train going toward L憝is and Qu嶵ec. The line L憝is & Rivi鋨e-du-Loup was sold by the Grand-Trunk railway company in 1879 to Her Majesty, the Government of Canada. (Re : Victoria 43, Cap 8, Annex A) and was merged with the Intercolonial railway of Canada. One can see the other GTRs railway station at La Pocati鋨e at http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/North_America/Canada/photo72331.htm:
