Canadian Northern Railway (Port Arthur-Winnipeg) MP 20-22 III

Third part of three videos featuring High Track, the old Canadian Northern grade between Stanley Junction and Kakabeka Falls. This 3.7-mile section along the Kaministiquia River was once part of the mainline from Port Arthur (Thunder Bay) to Winnipeg that was built from 1899 to 1902 (modern CN-Kashabowie Sub). Because of grade issues, it was abandoned in 1911 when the line was re-routed.

This part of High Track, located midway between the two stations, features several washed out embankments and a spot with ties still in their place.
