North Bay Heritage Railway Car Shop

This is the car & locomotive shop for the Heritage Railway. Please click on the photo for a larger image.

The Heritage Railway is a miniature railway that operates during the summer and on weekends in late spring and early fall. Over 100,000 passengers per summer will ride on the little trains enjoying the Lake Nipissing waterfront. It is run by volunteers and attempts to preserve some of North Bay's railroading history.

ACT Kid's Playground @ Memorial Beach

Located just a stone throw away from the Saturday's photo of the beach volleyball pitch is the Associated Canadian Travellers (ACT North Bay Club) playground at Memorial Beach on the shores of Lake Nipissing. Tomorrow I'll post a photo of the some of the equipment on the playground. Lots of sand and padding in case any of the little ones slip while pretending to be pirates or adventures!

Train Derailment (west of Verner)

The Ottawa Valley Railway had a train derailment a few miles west of Verner on Sunday August 19, 2007. Nobody was injured. As well there were no hazardous or noxious chemicals aboard the cars that did derail. (As you can see it appears to be goods destined for department stores - The Bay, Zellers and Canadian Tire).

The train was heading east to Montréal. Click the link to check out the daily photo from Montréal.
