VIA 691's train is to the left of me, the Pukatawagan Mixed has left town, some idle ex-VIA/exx-CN Puk Mixed passenger equipment sits plugged in to wayside power at the south end, affording a clear shot of The Pas railway station from trackside.   
With departure of the Puk Mixed the station has once again been closed and locked until the arrival of VIA 692 from Churchill later this evening.   
Note the Canada grain hoppers (NWAX 606435 & five others) at the far left of the frame, along with KRC 286245 (ex-CN 286245) boxcar.

The Pas Railway Building 329 Hazelwood Avenue
The Pas Canadian National Railway Station (1928), rare in its use of multi-coloured brick, is an important physical reminder of the crucial role of the railway in the development of northern Manitoba. Its hipped roof, with dormers centred on both long sides, and its deep eaves with plain but elegant brackets, make it a typical example of the so-called Second-Class railway stations built in many centres by the Canadian National Railway, many of which do not survive. The example in The Pas is in good condition and still in use as a station for VIA Rail. It has been designated under Canada's Railway Stations Protections Act.
