Beardmore Station Warneford Station Fairloch Station

Warneford Station, originally known as Blackwater Station (after the Blackwater River), was located west of the community of Beardmore, Ontario at Milepost 25.6/75.3.

It is not known for certain, but the name may have been changed to honour Reginald Warneford, a British aviator with the Royal Naval Air Service and a recipient of the Victoria Cross in 1915. The stations at Jellicoe and Hogarth were also renamed during World War I for well-known servicemen.

The siding here was removed before 1970s. Approximately half a mile west of the station, at a sharp bend in the grade, was 2500-foot through spur to a ballast pit (known officially as Pit Track KI-38).
