Long Description:
C.N.RY. UNION STATION, COMMUNITY OF CENTENNIAL, BOLT IN EAST WALL OF MAIN BUILDING, FACING OPEN AREA BETWEEN THIS BUILDING AND WEST SIDE OF TRAIN SHED, 0.6 M FROM NORTHEAST CORNER BEHIND IRON FENCE AND 1.2 M ABOVE PAVEMENT, NEAR HEAD OF IRON STAIRWAY TO BASEMENT.
I marked this as unreachable because it is behind a fence, but the benchmark is in Good condition and the MDV that is chiseled in the limestone below the bolt is clearly visible.
The "official" "scaled" coordinates listed for this Benchmark (in NAD27) are N49 53' 17 W97 08' 06 (the same as nearby 13M1F aka 1-F) but even after converting to WGS84 that is 554 feet away.
Unique Designation: Unique Number : 11M1505 Name : MDV

Marker Type: Bolt

Condition: Unreachable but Visible
