The railroad staton is located a block away from the hotel, so our first stop was a visit to Union Station where we would be boarding our train in the morning.
Union Station lobby is beautifully maintained. The station was constructed from 1908-1911 and offically opened in 1912.
Once we arrived back at the hotel, it was time to rearrange gear and clothes and get the small bag ready for three-days on the train. The larger one would be held in the train's baggage storage and inaccessible until arrival in Churchill. On this part of the trip, layering was essential, both for varying weather conditions and minimizing luggage for cabin storage. You'll see why in my next post.
This is the seventh in a series of posts on my journey to Churchill, Manitoba, to see Polar Bears including a visit to Riding Mountain National Park. To see all the posts click the journey to Churchill link. The most recent post will appear first.
