North Bay, Ontario

(map) North Bay is the home base of both the Ottawa Valley Railway and Ontario Northland, about an hour and a quarter East of Sudbury. It is not a busy railway town and not worth an independent trip to railfan, but has interesting equipment and trains to shoot if you're in the area.
