Steam heritage railway, Tottenham
Every weekend between Victoria Day and the weekend after Canadian Thanksgiving, tourists and train enthusiasts can take a ride on Canada's oldest operating steam locomotive -- a 6.4 kilometre (4 mile) scenic ride from Tottenham to Beeton. Engine #136 above helped develop Canada's transcontinental railroad in the 1880s. It runs on coal. Barely seen behind the locomotive in this photo, the 1920-era coaches used for the excursions. (Sadly, when I was there taking photos there was very little space between the trains on the tracks to get a decent photo of the coaches.)
Wooden boxcars on side rails - not part of the excursions
So, instead I took photos of the old boxcars that remain stationary on separate tracks.

This year on weekends from December 7th and 22nd you can travel the Santa Claus Express.
