E&N RAIL STATION NANAIMO

RAIL STATION BEFORE AUGUST FIRE
It is reported in the local press that it is believed the historic site will be restored after an arson fire last August.
Spokeman Doug Backhouse said he believed funding for the restoration could come from several different sources. Since the building has heritage status the structure has to follow strict guidelines to retain as much as possible of the original character of the site.
It is still unknown what the insurance from VIA rail will cover or how much could be available from Parks Canada, however the total cost is estimated to be in the two million dollar range.
Presently workers are securing the building to protect it from further weather damage over the winter.
