On the morning of Tuesday, August 31st, 1965, after westbound freight 401 passed, crews went to work to erase the old wood frame CN Pembroke Ontario station from the planet.  As the entire structure was deemed as scrap, no effort was made to save anything.  The process took only about an hour. In this shot, two workers begin t0 remove the old train order signal that stood in front of the old station. Location is approximate.

  1. Talk about sad!!! It was probably better put together than a lot of the so called luxury houses we get suckered into buying these days.
    Great to see that this demise was recorded though.
