I guess for similar reason, it may be financially infeasible to double track in Northern Ontario. (I even have a dedicated thread for that in the Ontario Subfurom.)


Again, Canada was to blame for privatizing rail.
I'm showing my age when I say this but my high school years were in the late 70's. Kids were as young as 16 that worked on the gangs - obviously something that wouldn't be allowed in this day and age. It was a great summer job.
