I was in Calgary this past weekend and I bought the latest CN Lines magazine (volume 15, number 4) from Trains N Such. On the flight home Sunday night, I read it. As usual it is a quality magazine.
There are two articles of particular interest to Maritimers: "Building the Heath Steele Line" by Ed Freeman, and "Halifax Terminal in Transition" by Jim Simmons.
The Heath Steele line was built to service the new mine in northern New Brunswick, and ran 23.1 miles from the Bartibog siding to the mine site known as Heath Steele. The line was opened in 1957 and was abandoned in 1987.
I invite you to visit your local hobby store and pick up this copy of CN Lines.
