Can Someone Pull a Rabbit Out of a Hat & Save the ACR Passenger Train?


~ Brenda Grundt,

Unless there is a really good magician, with a really big rabbit in his hat to pull out – yesterday at 3:30 p.m. the last ACR Passenger Train arrived in Hawk Junction, leaving with three passengers to go up to Errington’s. The train won’t go to Hearst, it will travel in reverse – all the way to Hawk Junction. Sometime today, once the Agawa Canyon Tour Train is parked on a siding in the Agawa Canyon; the ACR Passenger Train will return to Sault Ste. Marie.

Sad day. I had tears in the back of my eyes as I heard the last sounds as the train went past me. I can’t imagine how long time employees of the train must feel. Last year the ACR celebrated 100 years… now a miracle is needed.
