The "Blytheswood Flyer", as we liked to call it, trundles along the Leamington Branch of the Canada Southern with 6 Insulated boxcars for Heinz in Leamington.  Sadly the Branch is gone, and all the traffic is going by truck.  Next week what is left of the Canada Southern in the area will also disappear as a rail train is readied to pull up the CASO from Essex to Fargo.

    Some tracks still exist in town through road crossings too.

  2. When was the last train to Leamington on the ex Leamington Branch?

  3. Neat shot
