The last run of the VIA Havelock to Toronto train in 1982. At this time the replacement of the bridge over Jacksons Creek was underway with the main track severed and the old bridge removed. The lead RDC car has stopped on the diversion track adjacent to the new bridge structures on the right On the left it looks like a crew from CHEX TV is doing an interview of this event. Photo taken by my Mother.

  1. Excellent!
    You got a great Mom!

  2. 1982? I’m surprised; I thought it lasted till the big chop in 1989/90.

  3. It got reinstated but was cut again in 1990.
