GTR Buildings & Bridges Inventory 1903

PREFACE
This Inventory consists of a record of all stations and other structures throughout the Grand Trunk Railway's WESTERN Division.
(For the  Middle, Northern, Southern, Eastern and Ottawa Divisions, please consult GTR Buildings & Bridges Inventory 1907.)

The Division is recorded in three sections:
Structures
Bridges and Culverts
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 Western Division as of 1903, during 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. Each page has been scanned into .pdf format. 
2. The index page references are approximate where one District ends and another one starts. Please therefore consult the previous or the next page as well.
