Station saved!

$35K raised to move, restore Cascades train station


Thanks to the work of organizers and generous donations, a piece of local history will be preserved.


One of the last remaining train stations of the Gatineau Valley railway will soon provide trail users in Chelsea a place to rest and learn about the history of the railway and local villages.


These guys sure know how to fundraise!

The pair helped organize a fundraiser that gathered well-over its goal of $26,900 to fund moving the station to near the intersection of Voie Verte Chelsea – formerly referred to as the community trail – and Mill Road during the week of March 22.
