All buildings were built in 1913. The roundhouse was one of the first in Canada to have firewalls. The only original building missing is the 1913 brick outhouse. All stalls in the roundhouse were numbered counter  clockwise. I spent 3 years measuring & photographing the buildings. Each building had it's story to tell. As you can see that the yards are empty, not like they were in the early 1980's

Caption: All 3 brick buildings were constructed in 1913. The building closest to the camera is the “stores building”. It is the only one with a basement. The center building is the “car shop”. It’s last use was to store the VIA day liners. The last building is the 10 stall roundhouse & the two stall back shop. At the date of the photograph (late 1990’s) the E&N activities had been moved to Nanaimo BC.
