During a circuitous road trip through northern Ontario in 2010, Kyle Stefanovic and myself stumbled across OVR's "The Grimmer". Bound for the Tembec paper mill in Temiscaming, Quebec we decided to find the closest thing to a north-south stretch of track for the best possible light and Birchs Road near Nippising Junction fit the bill. RLK GP38 2002- GEXR GP38AC 3835 and GEXR GP40 4019 head up the train with a healthy mix of slurry tanks, boxcars and chemicals for the mill. Less than a year previous (December 2009) CP had stopped operating their bridge intermodal traffic over the line. Today Genesee and Wyoming operate the last vestiges of the CP North Bay Sub and the branch up the the mill in Temiscaming (as well as the Cartier Sub to Sudbury(Coniston).

  1. Awesome. Didn’t realize the bridge traffic continued that late.

  2. Last CP run through was December 2009 when CP pulled the lease. OVR continued to operate Sudbury to Temiscaming and a new lease was agreed upon in the fall of 2010 to continue the operation while the Mattawa to Smiths Falls section was abandoned.
