On The Rails

Northern train makes its last run
"The last Northlander train from Toronto to North Bay and Cochrane trundled out of Union Station on Friday.

Critics predict 1,000 employees face layoffs in remote, economically strapped communities served by Ontario Northland, the provincial Crown-owned rail service.

As people wept and reminisced on the Northlander's last run, several regional mayors and MPPs vowed to maintain full-steam ahead lobbying of the province to restore rail service and stop undermining far north residents, industries and tourism."
Elizabeth May was unavailable for comment.
