Many towns in Saskatchewan were built because the rail line came through. This ghost town was one of those towns. I don't have much history on the town but I do know that a few houses remain and there is a sign for an old school so it was a community of sorts. Today it sites abandoned, known as Lyons Junction or Tichfield Junction.
A ghost town where only the former school-turned community center remains. You can still see the remains of where the streets once were.
Type: Railway Siding
Last known status: Abandoned
Former CP Siding of Baring, Saskatchewan was established in 1908. It is unknown whether there was ever more to this siding than what can be seen today but I do know that there was a post office and it was closed in 1967. The siding today only has the elevator and an old community hall which is empty. Baring is so far out into a field that I have only been to it once but have driven by numerous times, always in the winter.
