  1. It almost looks like they may still have been loading cattle or hogs there…… i dont imagine there were too many railside loading pens in the mid 80′s.

  2. Bruce…thanks for posting this photo. I have been trying to photograph the CP here but so far no luck (although I am on vacation this week and my hopes are high!) Anyways….I often wondered the history here since the old concrete base for the water tower still stands. And I knew that the CP did have a station at one point (Bothwell Station…or North Bothwell) . Siding is still in for the old cattle pens….although the pens are now gone. Just a super photo.
