History / Biographical
Construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway commenced in 1905, under the direction of Charles Melville Hay. The present site of Prince Rupert was selected as the Pacific terminal and the community to be known as Smithers was made a station on the line. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was taken over by the federal government in 1919 and eventually became a part of the Canadian National Railways system.

Records from accession no. 2017.6 were originally donated on September 27, 2013 by Shane Westle. Records from accession no. 2017.22 were found in the Museum’s reference files in April 2017.
Scope and Content

Records also include blueprints of the interior of the Smithers Station, as well as the exterior, and plans for a GTP water tank.
