Gatineau, Quebec

(map) Immediately across the border from Ottawa, Gatineau contains the formerly independent city of Hull and houses the Quebec-Gatineau Railway (QGRY) and Hull, Chelsea, and Wakefield (HCW) scenic steam railway.

May 13th, 2019

Heartbreak in Gatineau: The Hull, Chelsea, Wakefield is truly no more, with both the track and the train itself ripped up. While the Union Pacific gets Big Boy 4014 up and running again, this is what Canada's national capital region tourist train looks like today. Surely we can do better. I had a chance to ride this train in 2006 and chasd it in 2005. It was closed almost a decade ago by washouts and never recovered, the equipment put up for sale and vandalised too much to save before it could be sold.
