The Alpha Panhandle The Alpha Panhandle Alpha Historic

When you reach the bike path, pause for a moment.  Looking west beyond Alpha Seed & Grain elevator were three parallel railroad tracks that merged at the west edge of Alpha Road.  The center track was the through-line, the northern track was the pass-line and the southern was the load-line for the grain elevator.

This collection of tracks became known as the Alpha Panhandle due to their close proximity.

The angled building at the south east corner of the bikeway and Alpha Road is former Alpha Bed & Breakfast.  Long ago there was a hook on a post at the loading platform where passing trains would grab the mailbag and toss another onto the platform.
