I think that this is a photo of the "Canadian" arriving in town. It has left the main line ( seen as a distinct line in front of the elevator and yellow building), and is now on the stub track leading to the downtown station. The LRT tracks are adjacent to the CN track.

  1. That elevator was on Fort road, pretty much where that is a new apartment building now. There used to be a baseball field in the SE corner of Fort and 66.

  2. Sorry, I do not remember anything about that place. I am not even sure that it was operating during my time in Edmonton.

  3. Steve, I am super curious about the elevator in the picture. It appears to be just off of 66st and Fort Road. Was it a seed cleaning plant? I am really trying to remember it there, but 8 year old me was more interested in seeing the trains lol. Do you what company owned it?

  4. I can’t be certain, but I think that it happened shortly after I left Edmonton in Jan 1998.
    I spent quite a bit of time capturing trains on this stub and down by the station when I knew that things were changing. I have no photos of the new station.

  5. Do you know when VIA closed the downtown Edmonton station?
