    Some unusual AI traffic from the other side of Fredrick House Lake at Barber's Bay. 1947 Bombadier Snow Machines that ride on tracks under the lake. Might just have to make a boat for when the ice thaws.

    Yes, but just the cabview from the DAR inspection car I made a year ago... it's the luxury version of the Snow Machine!

    Here are a few shots of the latest part of the route between Dugwal and about half a mile outside South Porcupine Ontario, about 10 miles. This brings me up to MP 110, the end of the line is jusy a bit over 10 miles and into a more populated area.

    Train 313 passes the team track at Dugwal.



    A bit of farmland west of Dugwal.



    Crossing the Fredrick House River at Hoyle.



    313's van is seen passing the Pamour Mine, one of several gold mines in the area.



    Hallnor Mines receive supplies at their warehouse at MP 108.3.



    313 passes through Porcupine on it's way to Timmins.



    Just passing MP 110 approaching the Goldrush Street crossing.

    A few more miles of the route is complete including the town of South Porcupine and the Dome Gold Mine.

    Train 313 arrives at the east end of South Porcupine to do some switching.



    After spotting a tankcar at Imperial ESSO, the crew will pick up and empty boxcar and take it to Timmins.



    313 departs passed the South Porcupine station.



    After leaving a couple of cars and their van on the main, 1304 backs two cars to the mine.



    After sporring the two cars they will lift two others.



    The crew lifted an empty boxcar that arrived with dynomite for the mine.



    Also lifted an empty flatcar after equipment was unloaded.



    With their train back together, Train 313 heads west to Schumacher.

    14 different trains on in the timetable plus a yard job in Timmins, might keep you busy for a while!
