One must imagine how important the railroads must have been to the communities of the west, and visa-versa when looking at this old image of Borden's CN station. Good sized building. And to think this town never did have much of a population. It's tally in 2016 was only 287 people. But,a generous fair sized structure shows how much the community business once revolved around being down by the tracks. I'd guess this relic of the old "CN Prairie North Line" has long been razed, but I have no information and certainly would like some if any of you viewers happen thru this area. Not sure where to locate this building on the map either; we can see it is in the shadow of a grain elevator. But which? And the Yellowhead Highway has been widened since this shot, and no doubt realigned as well. Station constructed 1906.
