Built around 1900, the railway station was a busy place, as J. R. Booth’s dream of a route to the Canadian West appeared to come true. In addition to train loads of logs and cut lumber, prairie wheat and passenger traffic rolled through, sometimes at a rate of 20 trains per day. The station was closed in late sixties and torn down in the seventies by contract with Jack Brown, who at that time was still distributing from his gas station, the parcels that came in by rail.
