The Greater Winnipeg Water District Railway or GWWD, is a 167-kilometre (102-mile) long industrial railway from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Waugh on Shoal Lake near Manitoba's eastern boundary in Canada. The line also goes by the Deacon Water Treatment plant. The railway was built between 1914 and 1916 to assist in the construction and maintenance of the aqueduct supplying fresh water to Winnipeg. It is owned by the City of Winnipeg. Follow along as we see the GWWD Railway in action!

Our first part of the tour starts at their St.Boniface Yard, where they are about to move a parts engine for the first time in years. The crew fires up MLW RS23 202 to do the job. they move the tank car and the Maintanance Engine out of the way and then get the parts unit, an MLW S13 number 201. They move 201 to the shop and then we get a look at other engines and things they have there.

we then head off to Deacon`s Corner,Manitoba to see them come into the Deacon Water treatment plant to get a filled tank car and drop off the empty. we see them cross their floodway bridge. they cross it and then go into the Treatment plant. the gate at the plant has been there since 2001. they switch around in the facility and come out. we get a closeup of 202 and the tank car and see it go off across the floodway bridge, back to the yard.
