The weather could not have been better as the southbound ORA excursion split the power and train to set up this photo shoot.  Ex CPR 136 sits on the Elora Sub while 1057 is on the Orangeville Sub, later to become the Owen Sound Spur.  The Elora Sub is now long gone and the Owen Sound Spur could be on borrowed time as Orangeville Council decides its fate. Indeed, those were the days !

  1. Hi Steve, great picture bringing back ORA days, their wonderful steam excursions on the Orangeville Sub, and a couple beyond to Owen Sound, thanks to the wonderful efforts of ORA and our dearly beloved departed friend JAB. There were so many railway excursions that are connected to Jim and the other hard working OERA members, all of which and whom are greatly missed. Thanks for posting, John

  2. Instant classic. Thank you for sharing this incredible moment with us, Steve!

  3. Got me thinking of that and checked a 1946 and 1956 CP timetable. Seems they had a 1 hour connection at Cataract so the north and southbound Orangeville Sub trains would have departed before this would happen. I’m sure it did occasionally happen though when they ran late.

  4. How often did this happen on a daily basis, during the age of steam? Beautiful.

  5. I did not know this happened. How fitting and perfect sun too..ORA did it right!

  6. Very nice, Steve!
