Two former railway stations

Two former Canadian Pacific (CP) stations mark the northeastern edge of Old Montréal and illustrate its long-standing role as one of the city's railway hubs. In 1886, the first trans-Canada train pulled out of the new Dalhousie Station for Vancouver. In 1897, the Viger Station and Hotel, typical of the "château" style employed by CP for many of its hotels, including the Château Frontenac in Québec City, was added to serve eastern Canada.
