Station statistics

Address 209, Boul. Saint-Benoît Ouest
Amqui, QC, Canada

Amqui is served by Via Rail’s Ocean, and Montreal – Gaspé train. Both trains share the same rail line between Montreal and Matapédia.

The station is representative of the boom in rail use in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, the associated expansion of the railways in general, and the Intercolonial Railway of Canada (IRC) in particular. Amqui depended on the railway to transport their agricultural products and finished parts made of wood. Subsequently, Amqui became an important stop on the train’s route from Montréal to Halifax, and from Montréal to Gaspé.

The design of the station Amqui is unusual for a station of the IRC. It is distinguished by its two-stage design, housing the housing of the station master and his family.

The Canadian National Railway station is a designated Heritage Railway Station.
