7:30pm at Government House:
The Story of Making the York Street Railway Station
Presented by Ian Robertson, Curator of the York-Street Railway Exhibit and a Past-Past President of Fredericton Heritage Trust and Jim O’Neil, Circus Historian.
Ian Robertson will present the Exhibit Panels and provide the background to his research and selection of images for the panels. There will also be a presentation on the history of the Railway station.
Jim O’Neil will provide stories on the 1930 circus trains that are shown in the exhibit as arriving at the Station and how he and fellow teenager David Dickson were at the station to take original pictures.
These presentations provide an opportunity to hear a behind the scenes story on our historic railway station and railway trains.
