The good old days when you didn't have to sit in traffic for 1 hour on your way home

I wonder how many of those little communities disappeared when the railway cut their branch line and the elevators closed?

An hour would be nice.

Lots did. I guess that Petros Pendant checked all of the names.

Here's a couple that I encountered when I worked on the CPR one summer.

Piapot, Sask. ... Bowell, Alberta (That one was named after a Canadian Prime Minister!)

There were hundreds, all over the West. You're just ignorant, that's all.

Piapot is still there.

Even has a bar.

Your just an idiot that types before thinking.

It must only be a bar.

This Wiki is the way that I remember it:

The Village did not disappear. When did they tear out the CPR Mainline? The elevator is still there it's just not POOL any longer.

Amy others you want to take a crack at?

Bowell | Forgotten Alberta

Nothing Found
It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.

PS find Bowell on the list above.

If you Google Bowell, they acknowledge that it existed ... that's all that is left. I spent a week living on a siding, there. It's near CFB Sheffield.

How did you work on a branch line that was cut?

BTW Bowell is still there too. It can be seen from space using Google Maps
