...and in the mid eighties the thought was that the weekly 44 passenger  *   trains serving CN Washago was minimal service...ha...wrong... 


Here is Saturday only ONR conventional train #120 ( Northlander equipped) on the approach to Huntsville ( or ? ) with converted FP7A #1987 ( the former green & yellow #1510).


That is the two lane highway #11 at left ( now Regional road #592 ? ), prior to the four lane divided highway.


...And from what I remember Granma Lee's was a neat place...


  *  those weekly 44 trains at Washago: 14 VIA #9 & #10 ( Toronto section Canadian); 14 ONR – VIA pool trains #128 & #129 Northland; 12  ONR #121 & #122 Northlander and ONR weekend trains #120, #123, #124 ( shown on the Timetable as conventional, but Northlander equipped).

  1. Nice. I have always felt this train was “underappreciated” by the viewers on this site. No other passenger train was like it in this country.

  2. Great shot! That’s actually just south of Trout Creek.
