    A Timeline of the CNR in the  Dundas Valley


The long grade that the Canadian National Railway's (CNR'S) freights and VIA Rail passenger trains climb from the Hamilton Junction at Bayview, to the top of the escarpment at Copetown and further westward is designated as the Dundas Subdivision.

Please join us as amateur historian Philip Lomax presents developments in the Dundas Area and in railway operations overall, commencing at inception of the Great Western Railway, until the beginning of this millennium.

Publications:

 Several of our local history publications have been out of print for a number of years. However, we have republished them and they are now available on a CD or in hard copy. These include "Carlisle Beginnings" , "The Mountsberg Heritage" and "... and they came to East Flamborough".  We also have copies of  "Into the Cauldron: The Experiences of a CEF Infantry Officer During the Great War" , edited by Steven E. Sawell.  Please check our publications page for more information. Some titles have a link to excerpts from the book, to give you a better idea of what is in it.

We need your help

The Flamborough Archives is working on three projects and we are asking for your help .

The first is a planned book on the history behind the names of communities that exist, or did exist at one time, in Flamborough.

The second project is a compilation of the businesses in Flamborough, with an emphasis on Waterdown, from around 1850 onwards. 

The third project is an inventory of street names in Waterdown, and the history behind the name.

We are looking for any material which would help with this research - photos, stories, advertisements or flyers etc. We would be happy to scan your original photos if you don't want to part with them.

If you have ANYTHING that can help, please contact the Archives at (905) 540-5161 or flamarch@hpl.ca

Thanks!
