The old Yahk station is long gone, as is a lot of the town. There used to be a water tower just to the west of the station but both have been razed and only transmission tower(s) are on the location now. The only thing the community is known for now is the "I've Been To Yahk and Back" tee shirts that have been sold at a local store for at least 50 years now. CP still carries out a lot of switching in the adjacent yard here though.

  1. This is a quirky little town where, for years, the Spokane International mixed train connected wit CP. Now, huge UP / CP freights come through here from the U.S. to Cranbrook and east.

  2. Matt: Glad you liked this image. Its good to see it is appreciated.

  3. Ya, I did get a shirt!!! Blue with white lettering. What was amazing was I went down to Burlington along the lakeside park (Spencer Smith) wearing this shirt not long after and I met a guy wearing the same damn thing !!! Of course we had to talk and laugh about it. We had both bought them at the same variety store out there. No, I don’t still have it :o ) Yeah, not only 40+ years ago, but I kinda outgrew it. :o )

  4. Let’s be honest here — did you get a shirt Arnold?

  5. Nice one Arnold !

    Yack hold’s a place near and dear to my heart, thanks for sharing this.

  6. Very excellent Arnold. :-)

  7. Another obscure member of the Mooney Station Gallery. That’s the Crows Nest Pass line I believe.
