This Thursday, December 31st will be the end of the line for the electric Deux-Montagnes line. Already truncated so that trains terminate at Bois-Franc Station since this past spring (instead of going all the way to downtown Montreal via the Mount Royal tunnel), the rest of the line will be shut down and all the tracks and infrastructure torn up. It will be replaced by the controversial REM light rail project, which is only set to be in service here during Q4 2024. On the third to last day of service, we see EXO 932 approaching Sunnybrooke Station as it crosses the boulevard of the same name. At right is the northbound approach signal for the south end of Roxboro siding, where north and southbound trains meet during rush hours.
