Sand Point/Fairloch

Warneford Station Fairloch Station Farlinger Station

Originally named Sand Point, Fairloch was a station on the railway located north of Macdiarmid at Milepost 33.6/83.3.

While nothing more than a whistle stop, Fairloch was however the main station between Warneford and Orient Bay, as well as a major jumping off point into Lake Nipigon, It lost much of its importance after the development of Macdiarmid during World War I. Fairloch sported a siding that was altered? into a 1500-foot spur prior to 1982 (known officially as Storage Track KI-40).
