Reused Stations

Many former railway stations all across Canada have been repurposed for a variety of uses. Some by the railway itself usually for maintenance employees (track, signals etc.) use. Others have been sold, some remaining in original location on active right of way but more on abandoned rights of way. Many others moved off railway property. Early abandonments were some of
the longest lasting ones while later years (circa 1970's onward) were subject to years of minimal maintenance or outright neglect rendering them less likely to be preserved once a roof failed to protect the structure or vandalism of long neglected buildings destroyed them. Community and charitable groups, local museums etc. Many have been reused by a variety of businesses usually restaurants etc. Some include one or more pieces of rolling stock with railway museums usually having the most equipment. All-in-all only a very small percentage of retired railway stations still exist. Here are some of them.
