Thanks for posting! Those Ski Train cars are now on the Agawa Canyon Train running out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

The cars were originally acquired by CN in 1968 for 'Tempo' service in Southwestern Ontario. They went to VIA and were used on the 'International' between Toronto and Chicago. Then onto the Denver Ski Train and back to CN for the Agawa Canyon Train....and just last week CN announced they are selling the Algoma Central Railway to Watco who will continue to operate the Canyon Train.

I really hope the Ski Train to Winter Park resumes next year, never have taken it but I love the idea of taking your skis right to the slopes.
