Running, Biking, and ... Rail History? Really?


I'm a bit of a rail buff, which you'd think has nothing to do with running or biking.

Yet, here we are.  Abandoned rail lines especially pique my interest, and when running there are many opportunities to spot where old lines once were.  Some have even been transformed into recreational trails (such as the 90km Victoria Rail Trail I posted about in the past).

I created a separate blog to talk specifically about rail history in the Durham Region.  My first post is about the abandoned Canadian Northern Railway line that once ran through Whitby.

Enjoy!  Or be completely bored if it's not your thing.  Either way.

I'll have to check this out. My Dad was a rail buff so I have been on the Agawa Canyon Train, the Train to Moose Factory and other middle-of-nowhere-railroad destinations.

You must be tapering to find time to create a new blog. I put up sheds during such times.
