In the first decade of the 20th century, the Grand Trunk Railroad constructed a more northern transcontinental railway across Canada.They named each siding along the line in alphabetical order east-to-west between Manitoba and Alberta. No one one knows who was responsible for this.
93 stations were named in the scheme, completing at least five rounds of the alphabet.
This became known as “The Alphabet Railway”.
