The End of the Line: Closing the Outremont Switching Station

Over the last few years we’ve seen a steep decline in the number of trains using the switching yards that lie just north of our house. The University of Montreal purchased the land and are in the process of changing it over to be part of the University’s facilities.

Below is an audio-slideshow – this is the first in a series I will be doing, documenting the changes to the switching yards and the neighbourhoods adjoining them.

Let me know what you think, or if you have suggestions for subsequent pieces.
