Another in a series of old stations; this one along Station Rd N (where else?)in Kirkland Lake has been gone for a long time. I'd love to hear from anyone with information regarding its' demise. It doesn't look all that bad, but neither the station nor the freight shed (up the line) I think lasted any more than 5 or 6 years after this photo was taken 40 years back.

  1. was closed but still standing in 1973 when I left KL. Use to visit my gram on the train when she was travelling from Timmins to Toronto, while the train stopped in Swastika to board new passengers.

  2. Good view of this old station. I like the boxcars next to the building (Freight House?) in the background.

  3. I have a PDF of the ONR passenger schedule circa 1967. It was train #84. Arrived in Kirkland Lake from Rouyn at 8:11pm. It met the overnight ONR train to Toronto in Swastika. Sadly I only have that one page which doesn’t include the schedule for the Toronto bound train.

  4. Connecting passenger service on the ONR? That IS a long time ago. Much appreciate your note.

  5. In August of 1976 I remember standing outside this station waiting for the Rouyn/Englehart passenger train to pick me up. I then changed trains in Swastika to head south. I remember being disappointed that the train had a CN F-unit on it. I was hoping for one from the ONR. I believe it only had one coach car.
