The CFL Train on display on the Sarnia waterfront on the CN Point Edward spur which runs through Centennial Park to serve the grain elevator at the harbour, which looms in the background. This is likely the first time since the early 1900s that any sort of passenger train has been on these tracks. Rare mileage indeed!

  1. Chris, on 6May1995 coincident with the opening of the new tunnel, there were 3 passenger trains on the Point Edward spur !
    One was a GO consist, one was a VIA consist and one was a combination Amtrak Superliner plus Bluewater NRHS cars.
    Someday I might post a few. But I’ll bet Marc Dease has some photos too.

  2. Yeah, I got some similar information and reminders on another post, unfortunately I can’t edit captions!
