I will now travel to the other side of our country to the Maritime provinces. here is an Illinois 16 size, 11 jewel, Getty model private-label dial and movement marked "G.H. Taylor, Charlottetown, it has a single sunk Arabic 24-hour dial. Charlottetown is the provincial capital of Prince Edward Island Canada's smallest province, it is also called the "Birthplace of Confederation" As the Charlottetown conference was held there in September 1864, it was originally planned as a meeting between the representatives of the Maritime colonies Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland, another colony the Province of Canada (upper and lower Canada) heard of the conference and wanted to be included too, this conference sowed the seeds that lead to conferences in Québec, and the delegates meeting with Queen Victoria in London to draft the British North America Acts with upper and lower Canada becoming the provinces of Québec and Ontario, this lead to Canada's Confederation on July 1, 1867, the province of Manitoba joined in 1870, and British Columbia in 1871, Newfoundland opted out and did not join Confederation until 1949.

The Prince Edward Island Railway construction was started in 1871, it was narrow gauge, and had gone bankrupt by 1872. The Government of Canada took over the PEIR in 1874 and along with Intercolonial Railway which linked strategic winter ports in the Canadian Maritimes with Central Canada became the Canadian Government Railways in 1915, they became part of the Canadian National Railways and by 1924 the railway was converted to standard gauge, dieselization came early after World War II, increase competition from highways spelled the end of passenger service in 1968, and freight service was abandoned in 1988, and all the track was torn up, the existing right away has now been made part of the Trans Canada Trail for hikers.

Woodstock, New Brunswick is located on the west bank of the St. John River 92 miles west of Fredericton the provincial capital, and is near the border with Maine it was serviced originally by the New Brunswick Railway with its headquarters in Woodstock, and was acquired by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1890 and became part of the CPR's line to its winter port at St. John on the Eastern shore of New Brunswick. Shipping was traditionally done through Montréal, Québec to Halifax, Nova Scotia but the winter freeze up of the St. Lawrence River left the CPR looking for other options between 1886 and 1888 the CPR built the International of Maine Railway from the Eastern Townships of Québec to Vanceboro St. Croix were the CPR gained trackage rights from the Maine Central to cross the state of Maine into New Brunswick. The CPR abandoned rail service in 1987 due to flooding that washed out an important bridge.

When I started this thread in December 2004 I had accumulated a good start to my collection and posted from the West Coast of Canada towards the East Coast, but as the years went by new additions came and were posted in no particular order. Someday I would like to put them all together in a more orderly fashion but this will do for now.
