I was up in Peterborough for a couple of days for meetings, so figured since I was in the area I'd check out things on the Nephton/Havelock Subs before heading back to Hamilton. I lived in Peterborough from 2008-2012 and worked across the street from the Havelock Sub for a couple of years of that. Any time I heard a train coming by, I'd head over to the window and watch. On weekends I'd often get out of the city and go exploring, and one of my favourite places to go was the Nephton area, though with the schedule of the trains here I never did see a train on the Nephton Sub back then. I also lived on Lake Street for a while, and recall the tracks going across there before they were ripped out. I did hear a train coming through once in that time - I believe there was a customer somewhere that received plastic pellets. This was long before my days of shooting trains, though, and since I started actively railfanning a couple of years ago this had been one I had been intending to get to for sentimental reasons. I finally made that happen, catching T06 on the return trip from the mines after my Friday morning meeting had wrapped up. Pictured here, 2316 leads T06 southbound on the Nephton Sub towards Havelock.

  1. Nice to see this move up to Nephton.. normally we see it in Havelock or enroute..

  2. James, I have a cottage on Lake Kasshabog, and the Nephton line runs behind my cottage. Every M, W, F, like clockwork, 7:30 to 9:00 am you can count on the run to both the Nephton and Blue Mountain sites. There are some great rock cuts up there, I will see if I can get some shots to post this summer
