I like your photos, they're always full of stories. They're like books.

I have been photographing train stations for years, in Canada as well as the USA. I have never been to any of the prairie provinces but maybe someday...

The first train station I ever photographed was Shellmouth Manitoba. It is long gone, but the pictures was published front cover world wide in a magazine called "The Grapevine" if I remember correctly. That was almost 40 years ago.

I began photographing rr depots around 1980. Since then I have shot nearly 5,000 of which at least 200 are now gone. Most of my photography is in the northeast US where I live, but the Great Plains and the Rockies are favorites of mine as well.

I have not made railroads stations any kind of specialty, I have perhaps taken pictured of 10 and that is all. Unfortunately, so many of them that were built in Canada have been gone for a long time that I think a photographic expose here, would be quite difficult. So I applaud your efforts. Is there any possibility that you will put them together into a show to tour?

I don't know, I have always pursued this as a hobby rather than as possible show or publication. My railroad depot photos are randomly scattered over at least a different rolls of film. But, who knows?

Gorgeous. I'd explore that more closely, if it's safe enough!

The weather here in Pennsylvania would murder it! Gross, humid summers and slushy, cold winters!

Interesting to see.. you would never take this for a rail station.. .

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
I think it is the angle David. Taken from the other side one can see the large freight doors. I don't think the building structure was changed, but it looks like it was used as an appliance repair place after it was no longer used as a rail station. In addition to all of that.... the rail line is gone and was probably removed 80 years ago, so evidence of that is almost impossible to see.

I just like to say, I really admire the hard work you are putting in to getting these images you do from Southern Manitoba. This, like so many of your other works are wonderful in showing the pioneer days of Western Canada and the hard work our forefathers put in.

Such wonderful detail and an eye for the beauty of the prairies. Thank you so much for sharing this and all your other works with us all.

thanks Dave.

It is snowing north of here today. The rivers are coming up and some flooding has happened. Today I will go west a couple of hours to pick up "Voice of the Pioneer". I have to cross two rivers, both apparently in flood.

In the end I cancelled the trip until Friday. The weather wasn't great, and I didn't want to travel in bad weather.

I am sure everything will go ok
