On the third to last day of service, we see southbound EXO 936 approaching Roxboro-Pierrefonds Station on the main. Two minutes later, northbound EXO 933 will pass on the siding at left. As the sign at left warns of, this line is electrified with a 25000 volt power source. Yesterday was 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 is now shut down and all the tracks and infrastructure will be 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.
