The train would have arrived in East Selkirk first. The old roundhouse was located there. At that time there was no bridge across the river into West Selkirk. From that point the railway line made a 90 degree turn to the south and then across the bridge in to Winnipeg. You can read about it by searching for Selkirk Roundhouse or at this link. http://stclementsheritage.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=138&Itemid=110
