I just love stumbling across little jewels like this. The picture is taken a few miles outside of Edmonton. Obviously, the building isn't used as a mill any longer, but the tracks are still there....sort of....buried in the hay.



Enjoy!

That's cool
I think it said "Milled from washed wheat" before the window was added.

That's exactly what it said, Bob.

I've been driving past this place for years....it's near the bodyshop that does our hotrods. Always thought in back of my mind to snap a shot, then I actually had the camera with me a week or so back.

I'll see about a shot of the same place once the 40 below and 4 feet of snow show up. It's just as pretty on a bright sunny winter's day as it is in fall.

The old deserted CP lines are a laugh......my buddy was concerned about me blowin across the tracks in my truck when we went out there. LOL. Once I stopped and showed him the well developed birch and spruce trees growing in the middle of the line he quit worrying.

And yes....I stop for railroad crossings....I'm not an idiot. This one has absolutely no chance of ever suddenly becoming active.

So how many well developed tree trunks does it take t stop a locomotive?  One redwood, I'm sure.  But trees growing between the ties?

Here in west Michigan last summer, a little used line took an engine to the end of the line to retrieve stored cars. The engine was litterally walked along. Passing between houses and a lake the engine litterally cut sod as the lawns were well developed. At driveway crossings they had to dig about four inches of gravel. Don't know about  trees as those had been brushed out prior to the trip. I am sure the rails will be scrapped out soon.

Is the building being used for anything, like storage? It's a shame to abandon a nice building.

Does Edmonton have a Historical Preservation Society?
