There's been a long and continuing history of Railway photographers at Inglewood - CN continued passenger trains until  around 1960 and CP until 1970. This Clayton Morgan (Doug Hately) shot in 1960 is essentially where the train in MY photo is - except on the CPR tracks not the CN. Excursions were nothing new either, witness the famous  Tripleheader (Bob Ross, R.L. Kennedy collection) photo in 1960  drew thousands of people.

Starting in 2004 (Stephen Host) and with a single coach the Credit Valley Explorer began their journey to return passenger services to the area. Service has only grown better and with more coaches as you can see above - fall colour excursions run daily except when freights are scheduled - DAILY! Impressive don't you think?

And in this photo - luck runs in my direction - I get full sun at the right moment, where the train would be lit perfectly as most of the run would be backlit in both directions, but not at Inglewood. Nice colours on the trees too. When the train returned Northbound mobs of passengers crammed into the General Store to buy souvenirs - I hope the people of Inglewood are happy with the tourism bump the train brings.

  1. What’s interesting is once this operation shut down, so too did the Inglewood General Store.

  2. you are welcome

  3. Thank you.

  4. interesting… nice shot

  5. Thanks mofos. The caboose was indeed going out for the first time that day – a nice surprise. It is used as a shoving platform as they have to do some reverse moves when running around the train at Snelgrove and at Orangeville.

  6. @RLK, yep, that’s former BBCX 79788

    Great colours Steve!

  7. That caboose….is this the former Babcock and Wilcox caboose?

    Great shot!

  8. Great lighting! If the station had only survived in town :(

  9. Cool!
