Atkinson, Maine Featured in New Biography

The Snow family has a long history in and around Atkinson, Maine. "Snowville" is the story of Russ Snow (1789-1875) who lived in Atkinson, Maine from 1820 to 1835. He left Atkinson in 1835 in order to escape a tuberculosis epidemic that was ravaging the New England States and find a better climate in which to raise his family.

About the CPR...Thanks for the Responses to our Query....

Submitted by Susan Worcester on December 7, 2016 - 2:01pm

 

There have been two responses to the question, "What was the CPR Coal Pocket called by the residents of the area?"  These responses also indicate the broad readership of the TRC Website and its international appeal.

From McAdam, New Brunswick  Henry B writes; I remember the one in McAdam was called The Coal Shed. (Thanks, Henry.)

This morning, an email from Roland C. in Frontenac, Quebec informed me that he remembers as a kid growing up in Megantic, Quebec the Coal Pocket there was referred to as the Coal Chute. (Thanks, Roland.)

Since Brownville had large contingents of citizens from both Provinces, it is very likely it was referred to by both names. So, Coal Chute and Coal Shed will be added to the text describing this structure.

Thanks... Read More

New Information on Ken Hatchette's CPR History Project

Submitted by Susan Worcester on November 22, 2016 - 7:16am

The Canadian Pacific Railroad in Brownville Junction Maine, History project

 is a Work in Progress. The project is moving forward but every once in a while we stumble.

 

Part of the project contains a listing of all the assets that belonged to the CPR at the train yard in Brownville. The listing will be followed by a written description of the item and its reason and purpose for existence. That is the plan. However, from time to time these items need to be tagged with the name that they were called by CPR employees and the townspeople. Here we have depicted photographs of one of those buildings. None of the buildings depicted in the photos was the one that was installed in Brownville, however they are very close approximations. The technical name for this behemoth... Read More
