The CPR Angus Shops in Montreal were a railcar manufacturing, repairing and selling facility of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Most of its production consisted of passenger cars, freight cars and locomotives. Built in 1904, and named for its founder, Richard B. Angus, the Angus Shops were decommissioned in 1992 and the underlying lands subsequently redeveloped for commercial, industrial and housing uses. After the acquisition of this land by the city of Montreal, redevelopment began. This consisted of several phases including demolition of the buildings, decontamination of the soil, and redefining the urban infrastructure of the Rosemont neighbourhood. The redevelopment occurred between 1993 and 2000 at a cost of nearly $500 million.
During World War II, Angus Shops produced Valentine tanks, primarily built for the Russian Army under the Lend-Lease program. The first was completed on May 22, 1941 and production continued into 1943. (Source: Wikipedia).
