That rail line is not abandoned, there is one train a week going to Arnprior with a couple of tank cars with chemicals for the Nylene Canada factory.
I think that scares me more than meeting a train...the track is in terrible condition. On,y the section btwn Corkstown and the Wesley Clover split where the rails have been taken out have any evidence of maintenance. I was able to shake the rakes in spots...can you imagine what a train would do?....I recall you and Mark mentioning this single time a week usage and thought I heard a train once in the area but no sight of it. I read on some rail site that the line was abandoned...apparently not...I stick to the ripped up section from now on.
