Bras d'Or Wednesday
Author: cn6218

Why Wednesday?  Because VIA's Bras d'Or only operated two days a week: Halifax to Sydney on Tuesdays, and Sydney to Halifax on Wednesdays.

The summer season cruise train only operated for five seasons (2000-2004) and this image is from the return trip, just west of Port Hawkesbury, on July 26 of the first season.  The short train is on a causeway across a cove in the Strait of Canso, and in a few more miles will cross the Canso Causeway and be back in mainland Nova Scotia.

Never rode this train but did ride Sydney to Truro on an RDC to connect with the Scotian. It is one beautiful ride.
