In the 60's, I used to ride the Canadian from Carleton Place to Sudbury to work at INCO. Forget how much it cost but wasn't much. Had a dome car...........great ride.
That line's long gone, and more to go I guess. From Ottywaw to the Rock you gotta go to T.O. first............costs over $200.00 one way.
Lot of folks cheer for capitalism till it kick em in the nuts.
If'n I was a young man now, I'd be headin to Sask. to harass Petros and Ron in the resource business, drillin shyte and hammerin stuff, haulin stuff................too soon old and too late smart. Still, hasn't been a bad ride so far.
If they tear up the rails and sleepers, can ya make a road out of it??

Something else Kakato. Recently watched a doc on bush pilots and bush piloting. They are a magical bunch.
One guy said that before GPS they used MAPS and dead reckoning, and it got interesting in the fog.
