Romaine River Railway
Author: phlone

Our cruise ship paused in Havre St. Pierre QC today and was able to get a glimpse of this very obscure railway.
Observed the afternoon passenger train transporting mine workers back to town. It leaves at 1430 and gets back at 1630, basically 55 minutes each way.
I’d post a picture if I could figure out how do do it on an iPhone.

Didn't they have two engines, an RS10 or 18 and a GP9? Very, very obscure operation!

Interesting post with a number of photos about the very isolated mining road:

All we saw were 3 GP-9. One on the passenger train and two sitting in the yard. We heard an ore train arrive or leave as we were sailing but never saw it. Rolling stock was traditional ore Jennie’s.
