25 Mar

Then and now photographs of Ancliff Station in Shuniah, ON. In May 1997, photographer David Schauer captured CN 5097 as she led an eastbound across Superior Shores Road toward Jellicoe and beyond.

Twenty-five years later the area is much quieter, the lone spruce tree standing vigil over the now silent crossing (photo from May 2021). Ancliff Station was located at Milepost 106.6/156.3 of the Canadian Northern Railway Nipigon Subdivision/Canadian National Railways Dorion Subdivision and later Canadian National Railway Kinghorn Subdivision.
