The restored  ( 2005 )  Edmundston CPR station originally built by the CPR circa 1930, from plans supplied by the office of the CPR’s Chief Engineer in Montreal.
  
  
 Restoration included retaining much of the original interior room and related woodworking. 
  
  
The station is a  Regional Information Center and the Edmundston Madawaska Tourism Office. Current transportation uses include a cycling trail rest stop and an electric vehicle recharge station,
