The easternmost neighbourhood in Winnipeg was created for Canadian railway workers. Even the name has railroad ties. "Trans" for the Transcontinental Railway and "Cona" for Lord Strathcona, who nailed in CPR's last spike. Until 1972, it was an independent community, but still retains its small-town feel today.
