CNoR/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision MP 22.1-25.7 V

26 Jan

Video of the former Canadian Northern Railway/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision (MP 71.8-75.4) south of Beardmore, ON. Features the original section of grade and the remains of two 348-foot trestles between Mileposts 24.9 and 25.2. This 0.3 mile section was abandoned and the grade rerouted south of the river in 1946 at the request of the Brompton Pulp and Paper company.

*Be sure to watch Episode IV first which explains why the realignment was done:

**Apologies for the muffled audio starting at 2:53. I put my GoPro in its waterproof case to protect it from damage, forgetting that it covers up the speakers on the camera. I did my best the raise the audio levels in editing, but it obviously sounds distorted.

Many thanks to Jeffrey Smith who provided the information to locate this forgotten section of grade.

Part 5 of 6.

Active, 1914-2005.
