The small settlement of Foxwarren (population 159 in 1986) is another classic example of a railway-oriented village. The CP line 1 passes through it with three elevators 2 on its southwest side. Two roads—one northeast of the line 3 and the other southwest 4—are parallel to the railway. Other roads are parallel and at right angles to the railway line producing a grid at 45 degrees to the section lines of the DLS system 5. As is usually the case with small Manitoba settlements, the hockey/curling rink can be identified, in this case west of the village 6.[i]

Other communication lines are Highway 16—The Yellowhead Route 7—that bypasses Foxwarren to the north and PR 475 8 that deviates from a straight line to cross Snake Creek 9, a north bank tributary of the Assiniboine River (off the photo to the southwest).


[i] Foxwarren is a famous hockey centre in Manitoba having produced a number of well-known NHL players.
