Out of Service Mack Railbus No. 31 sits outside of the Water District's station and works yard on Plinquet Street on the east side of the Red River. The line follows an aqueduct to Shoal Lake on the west side of Lake of the Woods where Winnipeg draws its water. The prime purpose was to service the intake and aqueduct but would handle some revenue traffic. The railbus was for transporting workers and some passengers. Also had Brill railcars
