Outside the McAdam Train Station.
The McAdam Train Station is a National Historic Site in the small village of McAdam, NB situated near the New Brunswick/Maine border. This train station was a very busy place during the 1900's.
If you want to see my previous post on this beautiful train station and it's history please go here.
Last Thursday and all this weekend the train station is beautifully decorated for Christmas. The volunteers and staff do a fantastic job and each year the themes are different. This was my first visit for this event and I was amazed at all the work they do to raise money for the upkeep of this almost 115 year old building which is now a museum and tourist attraction. Pour yourself a hot beverage and enjoy. Lots of pictures!
Lets' go inside. I'll take you through the station and share some of the beautiful things we saw.
When going through the station I couldn't help but note the beautiful woodwork and windows, and even the old radiators.
This room was really interesting and decorated for the men with a hunting/fishing/outdoor theme.
Yes, those are bullet shell casings. :)
Can you see who's taking a nap while camping? :)
This was my favourite table.
Take a look at this beautiful moose antler. Someone has carved a moose and tree scene in it. The pretty quilt is a lovely backdrop for it.
The 'ladies lounge' had handcrafts and collectibles for sale.
This was a stairwell between two rooms. Beautifully done.
Look at those cute stocking shaped dinner napkins.
You've all seen this ladder idea on Pinterest. Love it!
The tour ended in the old cafeteria with light refreshments of tea, coffee and sweets. I love the old stools and counters.
At the counters there were these signs telling the story behind the 'wedding couple' in the photo below. The bride's dress is 113 years old and the man's wedding suit is about 133 years old. The suit is made of wool and the pant legs are lined with burlap!
And that is the end of the tour. We are back outside of this beautiful building. I hope you enjoyed the Christmas tour. I know we did. There was so much to see and take in and one could take their time and not feel rushed.
If you have time please check out the link to my other post about the train station at the top of this post.
And if you're wondering if the station is still in use, sadly it's not. But, there are trains that come in for commercial purposes. The engines below were shunting back and forth and hooking up cars.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
