Slideshow: The CP Rail yards over the years

  • Print

Images pulled from the Winnipeg Free Press archive show the massive CP Rail yards since the early 20th century.

Winnipeg Free Press Archives May, 1964 Seen from the air, CP's mammoth new Merchandise Services terminal in Winnipeg dwarfs the automobiles and trucks on the large parking lot, and no wonder! The terminal, built at a cost of $1,450,000 can load or unload at one time 33 large highway, 33 local pick-up-and-delivery trucks, and 24 freight or express cars. Built-in mechanism in the terminal speeds parcels on their way at the rate of 180 feet per minute while safety features prevent loss, damage and misdelivery of parcels. In left foreground is a new housing development and in background CP Rail Weston Shops.
