Finding No. 21   Railway Structures Destroyed (Mainly) by Fire

Quebec Gatineau Station at Masson Destroyed by Heavy Snowfall 11 March 2021

OK the PK 12 March 2021

Station Crushed by Snow Load

Masson Quebec - Built in 1877, prior to takeover by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP), Buckingham Junction station at Masson, Quebec, on CP's Lachute Subdivision collapsed due to a heavy snow buildup.
The station was added to the list of Canadian Designated Heritage Railway Stations in 1993.
However, that obviously didn't come with any funds to restore the structure.
Now it appears far too late to restore it.
