  1. When does the train to Toronto and back usually run?

  2. Tues. Thurs, Sat EB, Weds, Fri, Sun WB

  3. any idea when they usually leave Toronto heading east?

  4. If you’re looking for timing, they usually leave Toronto around 6-6:30am and get to Havelock around 2:00pm, although switching and crew changes if needed can make the arrival time in Havelock vary a bit

  5. Very nice Tony, great reflection, good view of the bridge with the Quaker Oats building in the background. Is it still in operation ? Thanks for posting, John

  6. railwayguy, Thanks for your comments. Quaker Oats is still in operation, and even looking for help. It is still rail connected, but doesn’t seem to have had any service for some time.

  7. Thanks for the update

  8. CP is working to resume service on the Quaker spur soon and has been doing some major track work on the line over the past few months. There is no confirmed date of when the line will be ready, but I have been told it is almost ready to go.
