GTR Buildings & Bridges Inventory 1907

PREFACE
This Inventory consists of a record of all stations and other structures throughout the Grand Trunk Railway's MIDDLE, NORTHERN, SOUTHERN, OTTAWA and EASTERN Divisions. (For the  WESTERN Division, please consult GTR Buildings & Bridges Inventory 1903.)

Each Division is recorded in three sections:

Facilities and Road Department Sections
Bridges and Culverts (Middle and Southern Divisions to be uploaded.)
Stations, freight sheds, section houses and stock pens

This Inventory was rescued by former CNR employee and dedicated railway history researcher Art Clowes during a paper purge at one of the CNR's Division points, and is posted on this website with his kind permission.  It is a priceless record of every GTR structure of the Middle, Northern, Southern, Eastern and Ottawa Divisions as of 1907, a pivotal year in a massive GTR structure renewal program between around 1900 and the outbreak of WWI.

Note by Art:
"The GTR had a series of these inventory books that were issued every few years. I expect the information in them was not bad, especially dates around the period of issue and shortly before. These books were not "a headquarters" produced book, but a combination including information from road masters and engineers.  Some of my copies have plenty of notes, and I can recall coming across letters where some of this info was forwarded to headquarters."

Notes to viewers:
1. All pages are in PDF format. Note that the vast majority of pages have been scanned "two-up", with the even-numbered page first in the scan.
Note also that some short branch lines may be included in main line pages.

2.The quality of the reproduction is predicated on the clarity of the original page.

3. Please contact me in the case of any discrepancy - this has been a huge conversion and each page has been carefully checked, but we know that gremlins live ... :-)
