CNR 6218 pauses while headed eastbound during an excursion at Thedford on the Forest Subdivision. while crowds from the train, spotted at the station, surround the engine.  Part of the station can be seen beyond the tender.  Originally constructed as part of the Toronto – Chicago mainline of the Grand Trunk Railway in late 1856, the Forest Sub ran west from St. Mary’s Junction to Point Edward, just a couple miles north of the Great Western’s Sarnia yards.  The demise of the line came in sections, with Forest to Sarnia abandoned in 1982, Parkhill to Forest in 1986, and finally St. Mary[s junction to Parkhill in 1989.More shots along the Forest Sub:Calmachie, 1959, by Bill ThomsonForest, 1963, by Bill ThomsonOriginal Photographer Unknown, Jacob Patterson Collection Slide.
