Operations on this line:

     The former CSX Sarnia Subdivision trackage in 2006 was I believe leased long term or sold to CN from Blenheim to Chatham. CSX continues to use the line from mile 40 to Sarnia and the line is abandoned between Chatham and mile 40 approx.
     The last three photos are property of Merrell Philippi.


     These maps show how the line used to follow Fargo Road, then head south west across farmer's fields towards the lake when, it went to Erieau, Ontario, south of Blenheim, Ontario.
