With an unusually large daily Toronto to Cochrane "Northlander" with 2 ex-CN cars, 5 ex-GO single levels and an APU tacked on the rear, ONT GP38-2's 1801 and 1806 pull equipment move #697 from Mimico to Union Station,  passing GO 553 off Milton Line run #152 at Bathurst St (8:03am).  Upon discontinuation by the Ontario Liberal government at the end of September 2012, this train and the vital link it serves as a connection between small communities along the line in Northern Ontario is now history.

  1. It looks like all right-wing governments succeed in destroying more intercity passenger train services. Canada should look to Europe an Asia to learn that passenger trains are the future.

  2. Thanks for sharing this gem! I had heard of the ex-CN/VIA Dayniters venturing south of Cochrane, but had never seen a photo.
