Winnipeg Fort Garry Hotel is about a block away 
from Union station in Winnipeg. They where all very 
close to the stations. It was a pretty noisy and smoky
place to have a hotel in the days of steam. They are
an important part of rail history in Canada.

The La Rivière, Manitoba CPR station in 1953, when
it was still in use. Completed in 1898, it was in use until
the 1960s. The station, built in the French Canadian 
style with a mansard roof is the only one of its kind 
still left in Manitoba and now a heritage site (#081)
since 1994.

La Rivière was founded 1886 by Metis Franco-
Manitobans but the area is now English speaking. 
La Rivière (translated to "The River") refers to 
the nearby Pembina River. The name of the station 
was painted in large white letters on opposite sides 
of the long roof.

The station had full railway facilities on the lower floor
and the stationmaster's family inhabited the upper floor; accessed either through the station or by outside 
stairways. While everything else was destroyed, the
CPR station was moved in 1986, to the nearby Archibald Museum; to be part of their collection, encompassing
other historic Manitoba buildings. http://www.rmofpembina.com/museum.htm

Lake Manitoba Railway and Canal Company  (LMRCC)
Winnipegosis MB Station

Winnipegosis is located about 200 miles north west of 
Winnipeg on the west shore of lake Winnipegosis.
The rail line was originally built by the Lake Manitoba 
Railway and Canal Company. In 1899 it was consolidated 
into a new federal charter, the Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR).  The CNoR lasted until 1918. Due to financial difficulties, it was nationalized by government and became 
part of Canadian National Railways (CN). With the exception 
of the section running from the Dauphin to Winnipegosis, 
the remainder of the old LMRCC remains in CN's hands
and forms part of the railway's main line.
The station was built in 1897. This line is now abandoned.

Brandon North station, Brandon MB

Doug Brown send the following update on this station.
"The Brandon North Station" is no more. While the site
still remains i.e. the concrete platform, but the Station
was moved to Rivers a few years ago and is now called 
the Rivers Station. The old Rivers station still stands,
but is all boarded up and pretty much condemned.
A group of people in town are trying revitalize it.

CNR Sifton MB Station
This is where Lavina spent the first 17 years of her life.
It was built in the 1890's. Her father, Willard McPhedrain was the station agent there from 1927 to 1955.  Soon afterwards part of the station was moved to a farm near Dauphin, MB.  There are no tracks left as the line was abandoned.  I left there in 1946 to work as a telegrapher
for the CNR, and later on became International President
of the Morse Telegraph Club, the first Canadian and the first woman to hold the position.

Canadian Northern, Argyle Station

This station is now a  museum. It is a unique railway 
station, using a boxcar from around the 1890s. It is a 
single sheathed boxcar, set on a railway siding in 1912 
and made into a temporary station for a small settlement called Drake, later named Ekhart.

This is on the Inwood Subdivision, 5.5 miles north of
Grosse Isle and 3 miles south of Argyle.

The station has a passenger room with two windows, a
bench on outside wall, stove. The freight room has a large "x" style sliding door and the load limits from the box car are still painted around the inside of the freight room.

It is thought to be the only one of its kind in a museum in Canada.
For more information on this museum please go to their
