Northern Alberta Railways provided the CN Great Slave Lake line south from Hay River and Pine Point, NWT, with the rail connection to the rest of the North American network, interchanging at Roma Jct. on the north side of the Peace River and near Grimshaw.  A daily out-and-back train from the nearest NAR terminal at McLennan, the GSL Turn, made the connection, descending eastward to cross the Peace River and climbing southward to Judah, tough territory, and ideally suited to trios of SD38-2s.  Here, caboose 13002 and 404 + 403 + 402 are on a lunch break in CN’s Roma Jct. yard on Sunday 1980-09-28, only three months before CN absorbed NAR.

  1. Nice!
    CN acquired NAR in 1981.
    Anyone know of a particular reason that CN excluded the NAR livery from the heritage fleet?

  2. This is great. The NAR is the railway I wish was still around!
