  1. It has status on VIA Rail again. From the website:

    “Indication on the stop sign
    Boarding and detraining for train 1 westbound only
    Train 2 doesn’t stop, see Parry Sound

    For a stop at this station, reservations are required no later than:

    Train 1: 21:20 the day prior departure

    Opening Hours
    Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5)”

  2. So … am I understanding this right that there’s passenger service again at the old CP station? Or just the daylight run of the Canadian??

  3. Great shot. Thanks for the “wake up”. I had not been north in so long I did not know the CDN was back on daylight run thru the Sound. I’ll need to pay the Sound a visit this fall. No doubt a lot has changed.

  4. The “witch hat” stations are iconic to the Canadian owned railroads. Gorgeous building.
