Asbestos & Danville - Railroad



Company History: This 8 mile line was finished in 1900 to link the Jeffrey Mine (the largest asbestos mine in the world) in Asbestos, Quebec to Danville a few miles to the west. This area is about 80 miles east of Montreal. It had connected with Canadian National at Danville but most of the traffic was from the mine to the mill. CN abandoned their Danville Subdivision the early 90s, isolating the ASDA. Rail operations were suspended when mining activity ended in 2010 and the remaining rolling stock was scrapped.

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.
