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

Video of the former Canadian Northern Railway/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision (MP 71.8-75.4) south of Beardmore, ON. Features the grade as it parallels the Blackwater River at Warneford Station with rock cuts, cliffs and the remains of the siding. There was a photo taken here in 1916-1917 and you will see that photo and how the area still appears the same.

Also features a 1946 diversion of the grade which saw a 0.3 mile section of line shifted from the north back of the river to the south bank and two trestles removed.

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

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: https://youtu.be/Q69l8gKj_0I

**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.
