Art Carson added:The building is not the Red pass Staion. It is the Selwyn Staion a few km. west of Red Pass on CN Rail's North Line. This id is based on (a) checks of architectural details of the building; (b)Google Earth terrain matching and ;(c) my personal knoweldge of the terrain at both locations, any one of which confirms the new id. The building was moved to Red Pass in 1949 and used as a residence, but is still in its original location at Selwyn in this photo.
