  1. De-Railed: The National Dream Documentary Film

    See how the rails that keep our country together are disappearing.

    De-Railed: The National Dream, is a documentary examining the crumbling state of the Canadian Railway system. Having lost more than 10,000 kilometers of track since 1990, why has Canada allowed it's "ribbon-of-rail" to become so tattered?

2. Enjoy Jeff Hinich, Jason Willet and Guy Smith entertaining with "Song of the ACR", and asking people to support,  getting the passenger train running again.  Jeff Hinich wrote "Song of the ACR". Find it on his CD "Magician."

3. Hear Britta Wolfert sing and play her song "Achigan Lake" from her CD "Moonstone". Enjoy the scenic beauty of the area around Achigan Lake, which can only be reached by train.

    RE: “De-Railed: The National Dream”

    Where can one see or acquire this film? I can only find the trailer, even though the film should have been out a while back, if I am to believe the rather sparse information I can gather here and there

    A short video has just been added to this page. Take a few minutes to view it. I know you will enjoy it, especially if you use the train, love trains, or love the Northern Ontario landscape.
