Trains - mostly Ontario Northland. Taken at Moosonee unless otherwise noted.

I like trains but have relatively limited scope for taking pictures of them so the pictures may get a little monotonous. Some of these pictures are definitely not great shots but are included because they illustrate rail operations at the "end of rail" in Ontario. The Ontario Northland is owned by the Ontario (Provincial) Government. It runs a five (six in summer) times a week passenger train between Cochrane and Moosonee. This train has replaced the former three times a week mixed train and the summer only Polar Bear Express. There are also freight trains twice a week. There is no road access to Moosonee so the train and air service are the only public carriers (you can get here by canoe or snowmobile as well).

I have additional train pictures at http://www.pbase.com/paullantz/switching , a series of shots of the assembly of mixed train 622, at http://www.lantz.ca/moosoneetrains.htm and at http://paullantz.smugmug.com.
