Somewhere in Manitoba, this picture was taken.  I have the slide labelled for a town on the CN, but on the drive from Minnedosa to Saskatoon, this photo was taken.  So, 44 years after the image was made, it has been assigned the location of Solsgirth, MB.  Maybe yes, maybe no. The first car carries a single axle complete with traction motor, followed by 110 grain covered hoppers, and a caboose.  Map location is a real guess!
