I remember, as a small child visiting my grandparents who lived and worked for the railroad in Napadogan during the 40's and 50's. At first it appeared to be a large centre to me at an age of 4 or 5 to about 12 when my grandfather retired and they moved to F'ton. My aunts and uncles went to that 2 room school during the 30's and 40's and one uncle went on to Stanley after it closed in 1949. Their names were Eula Haines, Phyllis Haines, Harold haines( father) and the youngest Bliss Haines who would have been about 9 or 10 years old in 1950, when I was born. My grandfather had bought that old church along the way to Napadogan and turned it into a cottage along a creek or close to a stream that was good brook trout fishing( sometime around 1955 I believe). His name was Melbourne Haines and he worked at the CN yard there doing what I cannot remember. Harry1234, can you recall some of this for me as I am trying to track my family, most of which are past on now?....Andy Haines
