Another small piece of history soon to disappear, the Townline Spur in Thorold, that used to serve Interlake Paper will soon be removed. Saw cuts have been made in the asphalt along the tracks, so it won't be long before the rails are lifted. This short branch line, ex-NS&T, was most recently operated by Trillium Rail until vandals burnt a wood trestle in 2007. The photo shows Trillium 108 (ex CN MLW S-13) in 2002 with several boxcars on its way to Interlake.
