A tank engine rests near a few others at what appears to be a gravel plant. This unlabeled photo was in a group of photos taken by my Grandfather during a time he was working on the powerhouse for the Churchill grain elevator. The topography is definitely not of the Churchill area. It took a while to determine where this shot was taken and this is the best I can determine. Presumably stone from this location was used for the construction of the line to Churchill and the elevator as well. A generating station was built on this site in the 70's. Photo by my Grandfather with editing assistance from the moderators.
