In a December, 1898, issue of "The Star," Dr. Woodhull wrote, "The Nor thern Pacific has stopped building its road at the comer of 1-6-23. I t is still possible to have it come to Hartney, if we are willing to r ustle for it, get to work in a business-like way, quit our child's pla y and do something reasonable to get the road." Meanwhile, the end o f the road became known as "Trackend" and an elevator was built there . The name of this siding was later changed to "Argue". The elevator i s now privately owned by the Somerville brothers. A deputation from Ha rtney, consisting of Mr. John Hunter, and Mr. Festus Chapin, went to W innipeg, and, supported by Mr. Dickie, their representative in the pro vincial government, interviewed the railway officials, who agreed to b uild the line to Hartney if the citizens would raise $600.00 to purcha se land for a station and terminal tracks. The deputation returned; th e $600.00 was raised by subscription, and in spite of the rival bids o f Deloraine and Melita the railway reached Hartney in September, 1900 , with its first consignment of freight consisting of stoves, ranges a nd kitchen ware for George S. Pettypiece's hardware store. Th e year that the Northern Pacific line reached Hartney, it was taken ov er by the Canadian Northern Railway Company, which later became part o f the Canadian National Railways system.
