E&N Station Restorations Begin

Historic E&N Station as it looked in it's former days.

Rail Station Gets Closed In

In an effort to halt further deterioration by winter weather, the Island Corridor Foundation is finally putting a new roof on the burned out station.

For a time whether or not Via Rail's insurance would cover the costs was in question but apparently Via has paid the ICD over $850,000.00. The project also hinged on Via agreeing to lease space in the station once work is complete.

Getting a new roof on, is the first stage of the restoration process and should protect the building from further weather related issues.
