  1. @BradKetchen thank you for all the info!

  2. @ Paul Snyder Information here: http://www.trainweb.org/oldtimetrains/CPR_Trenton/Port/History_gbs.htm

    And Gerhard Wetzyl wrote a couple of articles for Canadian Rail, one directly about the CP Port McNicholl switcher that I can’t find at the moment. But some mention here: http://www.exporail.org/can_rail/Canadian%20Rail_no409_1989.pdf

  3. Thank you for sharing Mr. Mooney, again had no idea of the rail service going to this particular part of the area.

  4. Thanks for sharing this. I moved to this area a few years too late to see the operations around Midland and Port.McNioll.

  5. 800 and climbing. Well done Arnold. Keep them coming.

  6. That’s a smaller station than I had imagined since at one point it was an important tranfer point between train and ship. What is that – a’65 Ford Galaxy?

  7. Great work. I went to see the Keewatin last summer, It’s well worth it, very in depth and interesting tour, plus they have awesome T-Shirts in the gift shop, and of course, plenty of pictures of trains!

  8. Thanks. I heard about the SS Keewatin and do want to see it.

  9. Very nice Mr Mooney. A couple of CNR cars on display right there now and the SS Keewatin to (almost) make up for a missing lovely station if you’ve been back.
