Last Friday in Huntsville, Ontario - a man with a camera. What was he waiting for?
Finally, the Northlander pulled into the station
Twenty minutes late...but no one complained. It was the Northlander's last run and rail service to Ontario's north was to be replaced by motor coaches.
A sad group of rail fans said their last goodbyes
The red signs on the engine said Not for Sale, asking Ontarians to complain to the provincial government about the loss of rail service (and jobs) in remote communities in Ontario's north.
The 700-kilometre Northlander route
All along the route, people had mourned the loss of this service, especially in towns north of Huntsville where the service would be sorely missed.
After photographers on and off the train took tons of photos, the train pulled out of the station one last time.
