Before CN ceased passenger service on the former Thousand Islands Railway between Gananoque Junction, on CN's Kingston Sub, and the waterfront Gananoque station, an eclectic collection of passenger equipment and locomotives had the duty. Vintage Gananoque Facebook group photo, dated 1953 shows a wooden combine at the waterfront station. Watch for an upcoming post on CN's Gananoque Spur and the CN wayfreights that served it. Thanks for the inspiration, Jakob!
Richly-deserved! Winnipeg's foremost keyboardist and straight-up rocker Burton Cummings inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the 2016 JUNO Awards. Juno that before I told you?
