Riders crowd the rear observation platform of Ontario Rail's private car #200 "Temagami", bringing up the rear of an ORA fantrip heading up the CP Orangevville Subdivision with ex-CPR steam engines 136 & 1057 up front. The train is likely stopped to take on water at the Inglewood water tower east of the crossing, blocking both the main road through town and the CN-CP diamond (under Temagami's front truck) where CN's infrequently-used Beeton Subdivision crossed CP's Orangeville Sub (later Owen Sound Sub) in the village of Inglewood.

Temagami was originally built as business car "Ontario" for Ontario Northland predecessor Temiskaming & Northern Ontario by Pullman in 1914, later acquiring the name Temagami and number 200. She was sold to Ontario Rail Association in 1972. Today she resides at Ontario Rail's successor South Simcoe Railway as car 200, renamed "Nottawasaga".

The CN's Beeton Sub, originally part of the old Hamilton & North Western Railway from Hamilton to Barrie dating from the 1870's, was pieced up when the early 1960's "Toronto Bypass" project gobbled up the Burlington-Georgetown portion of the Milton Sub as part of the new Halton Sub, with the line north of Georgetown to Barrie becoming the Beeton Sub. One 1970's timetable notes CN wayfreights #522 and #521 were operated between Barrie and Georgetown on an "as required" basis, no doubt due to low traffic volumes. The heaviest power permitted were CN 1200-1300-series SW1200RS units. By the early 1980's a special note was added in CN Timetables that special permission was required to operate south of Beeton to the end of the line at Cheltenham. By 1984, the diamond and CN line through Inglewood had been taken up. However the Beeton-Tottenham portion would come under ownership of the Ontario Rail Association in 1986, and a name change gave them the new (and present) South Simcoe Railway, where 136, 1057 and 200 all currently reside.

  1. Would that be the late Jim Brown standing above the O.R.A crest in the plaid jacket??

  2. I’d know what fan trip that was just from the polka dotted red cap. It stuck out like a sore thumb.

  3. Arnold;There was a fellow involved with ORA that wore a hat like that.I don’t know his name but what I remember I thought he walked with a limp.Used to see him at the Milton Steam Era show also. Bruce

  4. Yeah, I know he was with the “elite” bunch on that excursion.
