On a sunny spring day in April 1996, several onlookers gather to watch as CN GP9RM’s 4115 and 4140 slowly haul a lengthy rail train through Palmerston, Ontario, literally taking more than 100 years of railway history with it. On this day, the CN rail train would remove several sections of the once thriving Newton Subdivision as it made its way towards Stratford one town at a time. During that month, CN removed the rails that linked Harriston with the festival city of Stratford and never looked back, creating another void in the Ontario railway landscape and securing the Newton Subdivision’s future in the history books.
