A group of children stand watching CSX 2574 shove 12 hoppers through Port Lambton as they sip on their slushies, not knowing they are watching history as this would be the last train to ride these rails since ownership of the line south of here was handed over to the Municipality of Chatham-Kent the next day. There was a BBQ/ pool party happening across the street from here and as I was setting up my camera someone on the patio hollered over at me asking if there was a train coming by, I told them there was and it would be the final train along here for a while, when the train came everyone at the party came out to watch it.

  1. It’s unfortunate that, currently speaking, Chatham-Kent hasn’t done anything with the line. It’s a sad state compared to what these lines once were. But you got a great story, along with a great photo! :)

  2. Nice work – while I wish I could have chased the train back to Sombra, I had a date with my Daughter to feed the ducks. Glad to have been there and was amazing to see you there also!

    Cheers and hope to see more some day.
