The silence of the North Shore of Lake Superior is broken with the passage of the Canadian
Pacific Railways train #1 "The Canadian" on its westbound journey across Canada. It's 9:30 a.
m. and the sounds of rolling wheels and flange squeal resonate from the deck-truss bridge
high above Little Pic River as it completes its descent of the 1.4% grade down Neys hill. In
charge this August day in 1962 are FP9 #1407, F9B #1902 and an occasional visitor to North
Shore, Calgary-assigned GP9 #8506. The Little Pic River bridge is located at mileage 81.0 of the
CPR's Heron Bay Subdivision in Northwestern Ontario.
