A Ride Back in Time

JD and Dog Friends Buck Juhasz and George Ayres are just back from chasing brook trout in the Agawa Canyon region of Ontario. They rode the Algoma Central Railroad from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to a drop-off point for Kwagama Lake Lodge. The train started operation in 1899 and carries passengers, baggage and freight from The Soo to Hearst, Ontario, a 296 mile one way trip. Most of the cottages and lodges are accessible only by train or air. There are several scheduled stops, but the train will stop anywhere along the line to drop riders. It also possible to flag down the train anywhere along the track to be picked up.
