In the first decade of the 20th century, the Grand Trunk Railway embarked on constructing a more northern transcontinental railway across Canada. An unknown person or persons took it upon themselves to systematically name each siding along the line in alphabetical order east-to-west between Manitoba and Alberta. This became known as “The Alphabet Railway”. Fifty-five of these locations were recorded and illustrates the effects of nature and time on man-made objects across a landscape.
