Almost a 'Time Machine' candidate ! 


Same (remote) location, same railway, different equipment, different train equipment owner....different angle...


Twenty Seven years, two months, five days prior to Bill Hooper's TRT #701 - 601 shot,


see:    TRT #701   


the weekly QNSL passenger train #1, powered by  QNSL #206 awaits the green at the same remote Sept Isles, P.Q. location.


Note the CPR Angus built  2100 and 2200 series passenger equipment,  all converted to oil heat.


And a credit to the late spring long daylight hours...


  June 9, 1981 Kodachrome  by S.Danko 


  What's interesting: 


QNSL #206  is a SD40-1  GMD built 1971, sold to CP Rail 1985 and renumbered to #5402


Always a worthwhile trip: drive to Quebec City, then drive another nine hours...P.Q. Route #138 is longer than the Ontario #401.


And be certain to drop by Port Cartier, although these are long gone some sisters are south of Buffalo on the WNYPRR.

  1. A beautiful shot Steve! It’s great to see some QNS&L gems! Although we lost our Island railway, thank God the trains still run in the Labrador portion of our Province.I was fortunate to have ridden the full return journey from Labrador City to Sept-Iles in July of 1993 with a mix of coaches as above, stainless steel cars, some ex VIA and CN equipment (still in their colours) as well as a dome car from the Wabash Cannonball! Thanks so much for posting! – Ken
