Company History: The GWWD opened in 1915 by the city government of Winnipeg, Manitoba to support the construction of an aqueduct from Shoal Lake 102 miles to Winnipeg. After the aqueduct opened, the GWWD shifted to moving forest products and aggregates as well as passengers. Passenger service didn’t end until 1981. Gravel traffic dried up in 1992 when Supercrete closed their quarry on the line. Today the line operates exclusively to deliver materials to keep the aqueduct running. Water and Waste Department employees also take the train as there are no roads along this route. The locomotive fleet consists of a pair of RS-23’s and an S-13, all built by MLW.
Brief History:
Canada is a North American country stretching from the U.S. in the south to the Arctic Circle in the north. Major cities include massive Toronto, west coast film centre Vancouver, French-speaking Montréal and Québec City, and capital city Ottawa. Canada's vast swaths of wilderness include lake-filled Banff National Park in the Rocky Mountains. It's also home to Niagara Falls, a famous group of massive waterfalls.
