In August 2002 I captured the retired ONR Tee Train on the deadline in ONR's North Bay yard. http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=5700#sthash.cvqIL53y.dpuf 
I have managed to get a shot of these remaining cars every few years since.  On a business trip to ONR this month, I once again came across the last remaining cars from the Tee Train set.
15 years later, one power car and one coach are unceremoniously dumped on the ground in a fenced compound at the end of a public parking lot off Oak Street in downtown North Bay. This trainset has clearly gone from bad to worse over the years. I wonder what, if anything I will find on my next trip.

  1. Very interesting find Paul. :D

  2. The date I first shot the Tee in North Bay should have read August 2, 2000. It was 15 years and one month to the day later when I took the above photo.

  3. I enjoyed viewing both of your Tee Train images, Paul. I remember photographing this train back when it was new and ultra-modern. Fascinating to see it now. I really like how you incorporated the chain link fence… it adds a very effective “ghetto feel” to the image. Nicely done, Sir!

  4. Thanks for the kind comments Peter. But truth be known, I’m not much of a photographer and the chain link fence was by chance not by effort. :)
