We went to North Bay to see what we could find there and caught CN #450 passing ONR North Bay station, the passenger trains, 697 and 698, and then headed South, catching #698 at Washago along with CN #301 and #300, followed by CP #105 at Alliston.

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.
