Remarks & Notes 
As most of their brethren being rounded up today and tomorrow for mass movement to St. Luc and an uncertain future, the opportunity to capture a pair of the CMQ SD40-2Fs on an overnight run on the former D&H meant that I would get to use the Westport Station for a setup I've wanted to try for a bit. CMQ SD40-2F 9023 and 9022 are in charge of 133 empties as they roll northbound on the CP Canadian Subdivision by historic Westport Station. The Victorian-era passenger station in Westport was built in 1875-1876 for the Delaware and Hudson Company (D&H, succeeded by Canadian Pacific Railway), added onto in 1891 and extended further in 1908. In 1974 the station was sold to the town of Westport for $1, with a long term lease on the land from D&H. During 1976, the Westport Historical Society initiated a major restoration of the station, particularly the lobby. With the sponsorship of the Westport Historical Society, the Depot Theater was founded in 1979 and became the primary occupant of the station. In 1988, the Depot Theater acquired funding for the restoration of the stations cupola through donations from two local families.
