Join us Oct. 15, 2022 for a rare-mileage autumn colours photo trip along the entire PSTR line, from Port Stanley to St. Thomas Talbot Street and return. Departure time is set for 10:00 a.m. from Port, arriving at the new St. Thomas Talbot St. station by noon. An extended stay will allow time for passengers to enjoy lunch and explore St.Thomas. We'll return to Port Stanley following the last service train of the day, arriving at about 3:45 p.m. Numerous runpasts and photo stops will be held in both directions. Please arrive at the station by 9:45 a.m. Trip will run rain or shine. Note: this is also a rare opportunity to ride a genuine caboose over the line, as ex CN 79305 has never been converted to a coach.
The tentative consist includes:
- CLC/Whitcomb 50 ton diesel L2
- One PSTR open car (former CNR caboose)
- Former TH&B caboose 62 or 66
- Former CN caboose 79305 (never converted to a coach)
Tickets must be purchased in advance.
Tickets: $35 per person. Due to minimal space at some photo locations, seating is limited to 40 passengers.
Note: there are no washrooms on the train. Also note: when driving to Port Stanley, the section of Sunset Drive in St. Thomas between the roundabout and Stanley St. is closed for sewer main work. Please allow extra time for the detour.
