Algoma Central Country

This brochure is undated, but it potentially could be from any year between the late 1930s and 2014 as the Algoma Central is unique among North American railroads in that it still offered passenger service along its entire length in 2014 (although there was some doubt about whether this would continue through 2015). However, the quality of the color photographs is too good to be pre-war yet too poor to be very recent (plus it has been in my collection for many years), so I’m inclined to date it to the late 1940s or early 1950s.

The brochure invites travelers to take a one-day tour to Agowa Canyon where they can picnic, fish, hunt, or canoe. Algoma Central has been part of the Canadian National Railway since 2001, but as of this writing it still offers one-day Agowa Canyon tours, ecotours, or rail trips down the entire 592-mile line of the railroad.
