Grand Trunk Pacific Railway stations
Site of a Grand Trunk Pacific Railway station (Mile 83) between Raush Valley and McBride.
In 1918 Eddy had three settlers, according to Wrigley’s Directory, dwindling to only a section crew by 1928. In the late 1930s it blossomed into a sawmill community until the late 1960s.
The Eddy Post Office was open from 1945 to 1947.
I remember this station was still standing in about ’63, but the CNR burned it down shortly thereafter.— Robert Frear, Memories of Eddy, British Columbia.
