Searchmont Station Details

This series of photos of Searchmont station was taken on July 13, 2013. The station has certainly seen better days, but at least it still stands for now.

  1. Love the work so far! do you live in the soo? Email me and let me know, I may see if you can take some high res photos in the fall for me for my back drop! Looking good! I have 205, 201, 188 and 181 coming soon!

    • Thanks Nick.

      I actually live in southern Ontario, not the Sault. I took a railfan vacation through northern Ontario in July, visiting Sault Ste. Marie, Searchmont and Hawk Junction on the former ACR, and then spending a few days on the Ontario Northland. These photos were taken on that trip.

    • I don’t currently have plans to go up again this year; it’s six hours from here to the Soo so it’s not exactly a day trip.

      I enjoyed my Northern Ontario trip and would definitely do it again, but I’m not sure that it’s going to happen this fall.
