This will be the last day of my Pinetree Line Motorcycle trip, having returned to North Bay last night I was back to my starting point of North Bay and again Hwy #11.
Got a real early start at 8:00am and headed for home making a stop at Elmsford which is adjacent to the CN Newmarket Sub and while doing some video out-takes would you know along come CN#451 (Toronto-North Bay) freight, this train will become the ONLY CN train that we saw all week.
There was one Pinetree Line radar site still to be checked out at Edgar, which is between Barrie and Orillia, not much left here other than the guard house and the community centre building, and there was a big backhoe sitting there, so maybe it will be all gone in a week or so.
Guard House CFS-Edgar
Community Centre Building CFS-Edgar
Interesting view of the interior of the Community Centre building, note the raised platforms forming some kind of a stage.
CFS-Edgar, some of the roads. Now just ghost of the past remain on the site, sometimes you feel a presence, like here.
That raps up 7 days on the road, hit some heavy rain just North of Toronto, only lasted 5 minutes did not bother with rain gear it was +40c and I was dry in less than 2 minutes as were the roads, but lots of heavy traffic on the 400, 407 and QEW. I was glad to be home a 4pm and the welcome of the air conditioned house.
