  1. I’m very much interested in accessing a complete map of the Manitoba Reston spur ( Peanut) line that ran to Wolseley, Sask.
    The line ran past our farm north of Peebles.

  2. Hello
    My question is about the crossing near Lutes street in Moncton NB. On average how many trains so matter freight or passenger pass through this area from 11pm to 9 am. HAHAHAHA I am trying to figure out if they are causing my sleep problems or not If I can pinpoint some of the times- approximately – it sure would help. I enjoy the trains don’t get me wrong and all the services they provide. My doctor is trying to help me solve sleep issues . Thanks for your time

    • Hi Brenda, it’s hard to say. You said Lutes Road? There’s no tracks near there unless I am looking at the wrong part of Moncton. There are two eastbound trains and two westbound trains daily east-west through Moncton. Currently there is no passenger train running.

  3. Does an individual locomotive have the ability to power up additional traction motors of an adjacent locomotive?

  4. Hope you are well!

    I came by your site looking for freight train routes through Toronto.

    I am planning to buy a property close to a rail line and just wanted to see if there will be long freight trains which run in the middle of the night.

    Many many many years ago we had a home close to tracks and I remember waking up in the middle of the night due to the long freight trains.

    Now I have a baby and we all don’t want to be waking to the freight trains.

    Thank you

    • Hi Alex, it depends a lot on where in Toronto you are looking. A few clues you can look for are: is it just one track or two or three? Are there signals on the line? Multi track lines with signals will be higher traffic.
