A humble prairie elevator at Fannystelle, Manitoba. What a name!
As sun set the car barn underwent a temperature inversion causing a dense fog to rise from the puddles where tracks once where. I opened the Yellowstone-sized doors and watched the bank roll out into downtown Mitchell.
The skyway in the bottom of the picture is now gone.
Milwaukee Road’s second substation at Loweth, as seen from the highway. Somewhat ironically, a new electrical substation is across the street from it today.In the background, you can make out a collapsing storage shed and some of the grades.
Taken from under the headframe.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
Looking at the headframe for Shaft 3 from the tower for Shaft 1. Below is the roof of the Dry House. It was hard to remind myself that these building have been abandoned longer than I’ve been alive.
