Artifact of the Week
The railway station at Jerseyside was built in 1888. In 1921 a new wharf and terminal station was built at Argentia, but trains continued to run on a spur line to Placentia Station.
The Blackman Map of Newfoundland shows the original planned railway routes. Only sixty miles were completed before the Blackman Syndicate had to declare bankruptcy.
