Kiron Siding

The Kiron siding is located on the Alliance Railroad sub which runs SE from Camrose to Alliance, and is about 2 kilometers south of the Agricore-United elevator , and about 1/4 mile east. The sign can barely been seen from the crossing. It had an elevator at one time... but I have been having trouble trying to find information on it. Of course... it could be the Valentine elevator, which was located about a 1/3 of a mile to the east of the siding. To get this shot, I had to walk nearly 2/3 of a mile down the tracks, since I couldn't find an access road.

These two shots show NW and SE of the Kiron Sign.. as far as I can tell.. the actual siding is long gone. The Agricore-United elevator can be seen in the first photo in the distance.
