CPR Pumphouse and Water Pipeline
The CPR Steam
Locomotives needed lots of water
to keep them running
So every so often they had to install pipelines
to a CPR Pumphouse on the Souris River.
The one from Macoun ran SW,
from NE Section 22, Tsp 4, Rge 10, W2
to NE Section 30, Tsp 3, Rge 10, W2
Of course all of this changed when
Rafferty dam went in.
This whole area would be under water now.
Morning of July
31, 1947 the CPR station in Macoun burnt to the ground.
It was a one storey building, with Office, Waiting Room, Agent's
Quarters at the rear,
and an Express and Freight Warehouse.
Station Agent at the time, R. J. Jaques
Fred Vicary from Hitchcock turned in the alarm at 2:30 am
Fire Chief William Winton, and the Estevan Fire Department responded
the building was a total loss.
