The Amtrak stop in Saint-Lambert is typical of those built in the 1980s with a flat roof and simple architecture. This station in a Montreal suburb is operated by VIA Rail Canada and also serves commuter rail lines.

Sitting on the southern bank of the Saint Lawrence River opposite the island of Montreal, Saint-Lambert’s European settlement dates from the 17th century, made from areas in two seignories, La Prairie and Longeuil. The tract of land that had been part of La Prairie, then known as Mouillepied, was granted between 1674 and 1697; the portion from Charles Le Moyne’s Longeuil would only be donated at the end of the 17th century. The city is named for the French-Canadian hunter Lambert Raphael Closse.

English farmers settled in Saint-Lambert in the beginning of the 19th century, and the region retained its rural character until the early 1850s, when the Champlain and St. Lawrence Railroad saw an opportunity to develop close to Montreal. In 1859, the two-mile-long Victoria Jubilee Bridge to Montreal was completed across the Saint Lawrence, making the final connection.

The connection by rail to Montreal encouraged Saint-Lambert’s transition from rural to suburban. It became a village in 1892, a town in 1898, and a city in 1921. Beginning in the 1870s Saint-Lambert was principally Anglophone, a residential suburb made up of white-collar workers, craftsmen and shopkeepers whose livelihoods were linked to the railway. The Francophone Catholic population dwindled, recovering only since the 1970s.

Service on the Adirondack is financed primarily through funds made available by the New York State Department of Transportation.


*Adirondack service resumed in April 2023 following a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
