Riding the Rails on the Hogg Bay Trestle

FLASHBACK – June 5, 1960

“Wasn’t that a marvellous trip to the Martyrs' Shrine! I learned so much! The lunch they served was terrific! I heard this train might not stop until we reach Toronto.”

This is part of a conversation that may have been heard on the CPR # 2857. The train was crossing the Hogg Bay Trestle returning from Port McNicoll on an Upper Canada Railway Society Excursion. Many of the passengers had been bussed to the other end of the trestle and were taking photos as the train crossed the trestle and approached them.

What an awesome and gorgeous looking view! Watching how the train is curving in its tracks, with all those cars. But, I do enjoy seeing the Engine, with its smoke coming out of its horn! I applaud to the picture of this! Thank you, I truly appreciate it!
