GTPR- Stations

This Section lists all the Stations, Creeks, Lakes etc, starting from the West End of the line, at Prince Rupert BC, to Fort Fraser BC in the Mountain Section.
All Mileage is Railway mileage.
Some stops below were discontinued as the years went by.

Feb 1911, Alfred Erwin McMaster, GTP Agent in Prince Rupert, released a list of Station names to the press.
Names of new Stations from Prince Rupert to Copper River, The First 100 miles of the GTPR.

Names were picked in the head office, usually by Mr. E. J. Chamberlain and Mr. W. P. Hinton.

Edson Joseph Chamberlain

William Pittman Lett Hinton

They then submitted all names to their Telegraph staff, who had the final say,
As the names had to be short, capable of a distinct transmission on the Telegraph Lines.

All station buildings were built using the standard GTP “A” plan
A neat Station building with provision to house the Agent, and for the usual handling of Passengers and Freight.

Evelyn Station
Latitude- 54º 53' 32“ N, Longitude-127º 16' 10” W
Elevation- 1557 ft above sea level
1528.7 miles from Winnipeg
Originally thought named after Alfred Smither's daughter, but he didn't have a daughter Evelyn,
Then BC Gazeteer says it was named after one of William Pitman Litt Hinton's daughters,
who was Vice President and GM of the GTPR
Only problem, he only had one daughter, Kathlyn B. Hinton, and 2 sons, Arthur and Robert.
So now we are back to where did the name Evelyn come from?
Researching the First 2 Investors in the GTPR,
Speyer Bros. and N. M. Rothschild & Son, all Bankers in London, England.
I noticed one of the Rothschild Sons, involved with the Bank at that time,
was Evelyn Achille de Rothschild (B.A.)
b- Jan 6, 1886, London, England
d- Nov 17, 1917, Palestine, during WWI
He is now my guess where this name came from. He would have been well known by Mr. Smithers, and all the Directors in England.
Here we were looking for a female, but found a male named Evelyn?
