    1. Why Siding 14?  It's  a nod to our rich Alberta and western Canadian railway heritage.  Before the town of Ponoka was named, it was Siding 14 of the Calgary-Edmonton Railway Company.  The siding was a supply point  for steam locomotives making the run between the two major cities.  The railway  not only provided transportation between small towns and major centers, it was  historically the heart of communication and social interaction in communities across the province.
