Luna’s Offbeat Adventures-Episode III

Hi everyone! My name is Luna and I’m a very active and curious Labradoodle. I love to follow my dad on his history exploration adventures, so he decided to put a camera on me to record what I see while we’re hiking. It’s in its armoured housing, so the audio is muffled, the harness doesn’t always stay in the right spot and the GoPro can’t always compensate for my movements, so there are no awards for sound and cinematography here (seriously, it’s very shaky at times). It’s just raw, minimally edited video.

This episode took us to Jellicoe, ON, where there was once large railway presence from 1914 to 2005. You’ll see the remains of a coal tower, turntable pit and other old structures. Since I’m always following him, you get to see lots of my dad’s behind!

CNoR/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision MP 0.5-3 II

Video of the former Canadian Northern Railway/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision (MP 50.2-52.7) west of Jellicoe, ON. Features the grade as it pushes west with several large rock cuts, ties, milepost markers and rock culverts. **Apologies for the audio issues between 2:44 and 9:10. Not sure what happened, but maybe some water got into the microphone (I’ve never had this issue before or since).

Part 2 of 4.

Active, 1914-2005.

Video of the former Canadian Northern Railway/CN-Kinghorn (Dorion) Subdivision (MP 50.2-52.7) west of Jellicoe, ON. Features the grade from the south side of Highway 11 as it skirts alongside Settingduck Lake with rock cuts and stone culverts. The “mystery object” is likely a battery well for the switch to operate the signals on the highway crossing.
