The rather dilapidated looking station was located at mile 4.7 CP Webbwood Sub. That is about all I know of it, and am seeking information. Probably built before 1900; as there are records of a 'decorated station' for the first trans-continental passenger train stopping there in 1886. But I do not know if it was the same building, constructed new at that time. I believe the structure was torn down in the late 1970s, replaced by one of those little rectangular pre-fabs that CP made good use of in the North. Copper Cliff, once actually larger than Sudbury itself, was known for its huge smelter smokestack, one of the world's largest. The town became part of the Regional Municipality of Sudbury in 1973.

  1. And so the story is in reality…..FACT. Anything of the vegetation variety had one heck of a time surviving within a range of 15 miles to the east of that Stack.

  2. Things looked pretty bleak in that area still in 1976 didn’t it?
    Acid Rain from the smelter had denuded the area vegetation so that the first men sent to the moon had trained on the bare rocks of that area so the story went.
