Join us June 8th (tentative) for a rare-mileage 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 visits to the restored 1873 Canada Southern station and the Elgin County Railway Museum. 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:
- GE 44 ton L3 Winnie (former CNR #1)
- 1 PSTR open car (former CNR caboose)
- Caboose #62 or #66 (former TH&B)
Former CN caboose 79305 (never converted to a coach)
Note: A minimum of 30 tickets must be sold for this trip to go ahead. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
