Roxboro-Pierrefonds is a commuter rail station on the AMT Deux-Montagnes Line in the Greater Montreal, Quebec, Canada area.

History[edit]

The station was originally named Roxboro, and was built as part of Canadian Northern Railway's line from Montreal to Deux-Montagnes via the Mount Royal Tunnel. It handled passengers, mail, and freight. Roxboro Station burned down in 1932 and was not immediately rebuilt. Instead the stop moved approximately one-half mile (0.8 km) west to where the railway crossed Gouin Boulevard West. This station was known as Ste-Genevieve. By 1944 the stop had returned to its original site and was once more known as Roxboro. The new, small station no longer handled freight.[3]

Location[edit]

The station is located in the former city of Roxboro in the Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough of Montreal, at 11100 Gouin Boulevard West. The platforms can also be accessed from the east where the line crosses Commercial Center (11th Avenue).
