CPR to demolish more than 50-year-old locomotive shop in British Columbia


Canadian Pacific Railway plans to demolish a decommissioned locomotive maintenance building in Nelson, British Columbia.

The railroad issued a request for proposals for the demolition work in summer and expects to award a contract to Hazco Environmental. Demolition work will be completed next year.

CPR used the shop for heavy locomotive maintenance work from 1954 to 1975. The building was decommissioned in 1988 and has stood vacant ever since.

CPR continues to negotiate with city of Nelson officials on the future of an adjacent Nelson Station building.
