 Hydro Quebec was a strong objector at the CTC abandonment hearings.


“Hydro Quebec opposed the abandonment as it considers rail to be the only effective method of transporting its large, heavy equipment to Hydro Quebec stations served by the Ste. Agathe Subdivision. 


...the Quebec Ministry of Transport refused Hydro Quebec's request to transport by road the transformers from the Grand-Brûlé Substation. The transformers weigh 107,000 kg each. There are 6 transformers in total with 2 transformers currently being repaired at the maintenance facility at Varennes, Quebec. One transformer will be returned to Grand-Brûlé [substation located near Mount-Tremblant ] in December 1989 and the second transformer will be returned at the beginning of 1990. The remaining four transformers will be transported to the repair facility in 1990, 1991 and 1992.” (source: CTC Hearings documents at the abandonment application)

  1. Actually, I believe this station is still standing. At least it was when I was up that way in 2012. Unfortunately I seem to have forgotten to take a picture of it.

    The ROW is now a multi-use trail and many of the stations have been preserved in situ as various businesses.

  2. Can you imagine the cost of heating an old drafty place like this? It is a shame so many of these stations are gone, but it would be much to expensive just to make a home out of most of them.
