Canadian Pacific - Billings
|A station, known as Exhibition Landing, was first built at Billings in August 1875 by the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Railway for passengers travelling to the Ottawa Exhibition. A siding was also put in to unload freight and livestock for to the Exhibition. That year the Exhibition started on Monday 20 September and all trains stopped at Billings. Initially, it is possible that it was a temporary station. (Ottawa Journal - 19 August, 14 & 20 September, 1875 and Ottawa Citizen 18 September, 1875).|
