The Hearst to Cochrane triweekly train makes its way across the Groundhog River west of Fauquier.  514 departed Hearst shortly after 0600 with 22 cars and subsequently lifted an additional 16 in Kapuskasing before continuing eastwards.  It's a fun chase as the train is limited to around 30km/hr and there are many interesting bridges and small towns that the railway passes through.  As seen beside the railway, Highway 11 also passes over the Groundhog River via a two-span steel truss bridge and work is well under way to replace this aging 80 year old structure.  The piers and headers of the new bridge can been seen on the far right.

  1. Thanks, Steve. I really enjoy the trips up north, especially in the winter months with the low angle sun.

  2. Great shot. Not too many willing to go up there during these short and very cold days.

  3. Haha, you and me both!

  4. I was starting to wonder if you still allowed outside of the house or not!
