CN continued service on the line from Ottawa on a daily basis after 1933. The water tank was moved to Barry's Bay where locomotives could be turned. Occasional trips to end of steel were made from there.
Abandonment of the Madawaska Roundhouse was largely a result of the closure of through service in 1933 on the CN line from Depot Harbour to Ottawa was the result not of the depression, but a decline in traffic, a year after the opening of the enlarged Welland Canal. CN's excuse to close the through service was a condemned wooden bridge in Algonquin Park.
I was in Madawaska on one fine sunny summer day in 1972 and I took the photograph of the roundhouse that Timo Explorer has uploaded to this site. He must have uploaded it from my flickr page.
