Extra Credit is video series that examines topics related to history in the Thunder Bay District and exploring that history.
This episode is a follow-up to the first video on hiking n’ biking. Most people see the “polished” final videos of my explorations, but those really fail to describe what goes on. So I decided to turn the camera on during the first part of one my hikes you can see all the “dirty” or “leg” work that goes into creating not only the videos, but also my efforts to document some of the area history.
The field portion of this video was filmed on June 1, 2022 east of Beardmore, ON on the former Canadian Northern Railway Nipigon Subdivision/Canadian National Railway Dorion Subdivision between Mileposts 14.9-19.4. This later became Mileposts 64.6-69.1 on the Canadian National Railway Kinghorn Subdivision. Enjoy!
