While coming home from work I ran across the BCRY as they were heading into Barrie, pushing one hopper for TAG Environmental and pulling a couple of old flatcars.  After dropping off the hopper they travelled down the Molson Spur and deposited the two flatcars at the location of the old brewery.  I grabbed a shot of 1001 as she ran light back to the Beeton Spur.

  1. awesome seeing those switches loaded into a gondola or almost out package (being a model railroader) ready to be put into place. Great catch indeed! Nice one Craig.

  2. I walked the tracks the other day and yes, the switch was replaced with a single track.

  3. The switch or at least a single track was replaced a couple of years ago when they were storing the tank cars. Why the switch was taken out is a bit of a mystery.

  4. Did they replace the switch next to Purolator? In Satellite view it seems to be missing.

  5. Yes, very lucky – right place at the right time sums it up. They sure removed a lot of vegetation in order to make this spur passable.

  6. We used to walk those tracks to a freinds place in the area thinking they were abandoned back in the day after going to concerts at Molson Park. Very nice to BCRY running!

  7. Lucky catch!
