I just got to thinking to post this for those of you who knew the old CP St. Marys Sub between Ingersoll and St. Marys when it was a going concern. The southern section from Zorra to Ingersoll as I remember it was taken up in the summer of 1987, and the 24 or so miles from Zorra northward to the end at St. Marys was pulled around 1999, save for a piece to serve industry off the Galt Sub at Zorra.
This image is of CP 8777 crossing County Rd 16 just northwest of Embro on its' way to St. Marys. Not sure, but think 8777 was based out of Woodstock back then.

  1. Ahh Noe’s just a youngin’ :)

  2. Oh, amuse me, Jason; but also remind me I am old!! :o )
    Glad you like.

  3. This is awesome Arnold. And taken exactly one month after I was born!

  4. This is awesome. I guess that Cement plant in St. Marys was lucrative. Anyone know if they kept going to the end of track by the station and for how long?

    There is some track in place in the cement plant that may or may not be considered part of the old St. Marys sub – used to have railhead off GEXR/CN but seems unused for quite some time

  5. Three generations of CPR branding in the first three cars of that consist!

    Is that a newsprint boxcar?
