Elie's Station

I was in Elie, Manitoba a while ago and saw this structure. This HAS to have been a railway station.

The style just screams "station" to me, from the freight door on the left to the slight bumped out center section to the lack of ground level windows on the ends, and the roof line.

A cursory Google search showed nothing but I'm convinced this was a train station. Anyone have any proof?

That's a Canadian Northern station, design '3rd class'. According to the Canadian Railway Station Guide, published by Bytown Railway Society in 1998, it was built in 1919 and is used as a private residence.

I just stumbled across this tonight - this was my Grandma's house :) And yes, it was a station house for many, many years!! We recently lost my Grandma, but it was home to 9 children and my Grandparents for over 50 years!!

Hi Erin, good to hear from you and thanks for the confirmation. Sorry for your loss. I bet it has a place in a lot of your memories.
