Administrative history

The New Brunswick Railway Company was established in 1846. Construction on a line between St. Andrews and Woodstock began in 1847 and continued for a decade before the first 34 miles of track were opened. In the 1880s, the New Brunswick Railway Company extended its line through construction and by leasing existing lines from other companies. The company constructed stations, buildings, and workshops to accommodate its customers and employees. By 1886, the Canadian Pacific Railway, the dominant railway company in the West, was moving eastward by leasing existing lines. In 1890, the CPR leased the New Brunswick Railway Company's lines for 990 years.
