Behind 144(i) is the Van Horne style station completed January or February 1884 with three chimneys. Calgary (ii) and Medicine Hat structures were the only two of the Van Horne era style stations with three, all others had two chimneys. The sandstone structure (iii) was designed in 1893 and construction started that fall. After completion of this new building the wood structure (ii) was then moved across the main track and yard to the south side. The photo had to be taken summer 1894. Calgary’s first station (i) was a bunk-house which looked much like a box car, but was of a standard design for that purpose.

371 all ready to celebrate the Jubilee (50th Anniversary) of Trans Canada passenger train service.
The first through train left Montreal on June 28, 1886 and arrived in Port Moody, BC at Noon,
July 4, 1886. The terminal was soon relocated farther west at Coal Harbour (Vancouver)
and the first through passenger train No.1 arrived there May 23, 1887 hauled by engine 374.
CPR operated special trains from New Westminster and Coquitlam to Vancouver
carrying people to see the arrival of the first through passenger train.

Note: 371 was scrapped back in 1915 so 374 was renumbered and substituted.

374 was restored and displayed at the restored Drake Street roundhouse during the
122nd. anniversary festivities held May 17, 2009. Balto/RailroadForums.com
