  1. Ah ok, I’m more familiar with the Beachburb Sub side of it in the Ottawa Valley.

  2. The Alderdale Sub. ran 144.8 miles between Capreol and Brent, Ontario. It ran through North Bay and Algonquin Park. The last through train on the subdivision was on November 24th, 1995. The majority of the rail was lifted by September 1997. The few miles from Nipissing to North Bay were added to the Newmarket Sub.

  3. Where did the Alderdale Sub go and when was it abandoned?

  4. Awesome pic! Love the stock cars on the head end.
