McAdam has a long history of railroading. At present, it houses an NB Southern yard and a large preserved station.

McAdam Station

The main feature of McAdam is the large CP station.

NB Southern maintains a yard in McAdam. The tracks to the right go to the engine servicing track (mostly for refueling). There is a small building, often with maintenance-of-way equipment in front of it.

A spur track to the right continues on to a wallboard plant and on to St. Stephen.

Caboose CP 436504

CP 436504 is preserved below the station. It was built in 1913, and was possibly originally CP 436534. A large wooden conductor is visible to the left.


A touching monument erected by CP to remember their workers who died in war. That’s me in the photograph, back when I had hair. The photograph was taken by my oldest son, then age 4.
