Historic Sites of Manitoba: Miami Northern Pacific and Manitoba Railway Station (Miami, RM of Thompson)

The Canadian Northern Railway was begun in 1899 when the entrepreneurs Mackenzie and Mann brought about the amalgamation of two small railways. Although they began to build new track they also acquired other existing lines including the important Northern Pacific and Manitoba Railway in 1901. When the Canadian government took over the Canadian Northern in 1917, the railway spanned the country. The Miami station, built in 1889, is a rare surviving example of a Northern Pacific and Manitoba Railway station which was used for many years by the Canadian Northern and the Canadian National Railways. In 1976, it was designated a National Historic Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
