May 29th, 2006

I took my first foray into the railroad jungle of the Niagara region on a hunt for Trillium. In hours of searching I caught an S-13 and two cars precisely once, missing them on their street running and never finding the other job in spite of hearing it in Port Colbourne.


Bayview Junction, Ontario

(map) This is where the CN Oakville, CN Grimsby, and CN Dundas subdivisions meet at a great big wye, beside which is the CP Hamilton sub. This location encompasses CN Bayview Junction, Hamilton West, and Hamilton Junction.

Thorold, Ontario

(map) Thorold is between the QEW and Welland on the 406 on the Niagara Penninsula and hosts one of Canada's few remaining street running lines where Trillum Railway (PCHR) switches an industry.

Port Colbourne Harbour Railway's ex-CN S-13 comes off an industrial spur in Thorold.

Welland, Ontario

(map) Welland is the home of the Welland Canal, Trillium Railway and much of the chaos that is Niagara-area rail lines.
