In the evening, I photographed the southbound Northlander set against the Toronto skyline. In time, I will be posting photographs of this historic, but sad, day in Ontario's railway history.
For now, here is a round-up of some of the media coverage of the end of the Northlander.
- The Hamilton Spectator: "Last whistle blows for the Northlander rail run"
- CBC: "Northlander train makes historic final ride"
- CITY TV: "Final Northlander train leaves Toronto for Cochrane, Ont."
- Timmins Times: "Northlander train was a lifeline for a son visiting his father"
- North Bay Nugget: "Last ride on the rails"
- Bay Today: "Northlander makes its final run"
- Toronto Sun: "Last run for the Northlander train service"
