is snappy little ten-wheeler was born
in tho Montreal I]oconotive Works in 1912 and it plûyed a
worthy par€ in
World Wa,r 1. which should not be forgotten. Û.anada too,
played an honour-
àble part in that terrible conflîct and mch of the credi
t wfas due to an
ôld war horse, (Sir) San Hughes. He had a lot of
titlesi but he wa6 Ju6tnsan Hughest to everyone, In an incredibly short time, he
built up a real
figmîng army în a country that knew nothing about war,
and mch of the work
was done at Otta;wa and at Valcartier Camp. The ghortest
ra,ilway line bet~
ween those points was the old Ûanadian Northern line fron O
ttawa, running
through Rockland, Ha,wkesbury, Lachute, Joliette, and Garneau and
every
Friday night a speclal train pulled out of Ottawa consisting o
f engine 1387.

Tho Beaupre Route.~
By J. Bredin
from in£`ormation supplied
by À. Clegg.
Runnîng eastward from Quebeo Ciby to St.Joachim lies the Montmorenoy
Subdivision of the C. N. R., fcH.merly knoinrn a.s the Quebeo Railway. Thîs
rail 1ine oper.ated as an independent road for eighty-one years until 1951
when it was acquired by the Canadian National Railw&ys. It had, howéver,
for some ti.me been a rather unique link in the Cànadian Nationalts system,
for it formed the only physioal connection between the CNRl s Mürray Bay
Subdivision and the ot}ier lines of the raiïv
ay. Between Quebeo City
snd Limoilou, the Quebec Railw&y operated over CNR trseks. and from tha±
point to St.Joachim`>` through trsiins were hauled over the Quebeo Railway,Light &nd Power Companyl s line. St.Joachim îs the western terminus of
the CNR Murray Bay Subdivision.
It is interesting to note the char&cteristios of the eountry through
which the line oper&tes. Às will be seen from the açcompümring traek
diagram, the railw&y skirts the north shore of the St.Lawrenoe River esst
of Quebec City for 25 miles. This is one of the most charming parts
of Canada. very beauti£Ul and rioh in the history of New Franoe. The
legendaïy stories of the &rea are eert&inly colourful even if not alw&ys
qüite authentic. At Ste.Arine de Beaupre stands-the great Basiliô& &ndshrines to Ste.Anne which attra¢t many thous&nds of Roman Catholîc pil-
grims each year. An unusual attraction along the route is MontmorenoyFalls, a scenio wonder that is & fascimting drawir.g point for many tourists.Nowhefe cam a tûtter view of. this cataract be obtained than from the rail
line which crosses` the river just below the cliffs.
The railwa}. i.tse.if has had an inteTest;in,ç3 :nist;ory® It was started
in 1881 when a ccmpFny kncm:i as the Quet`ec n/iûi.`:ï:.orency and Charlevoix Ry.
was incorpci.&ted to bu:?~1d a rail linc +.ù pï`ov.ir+€ transportation along the
north shore of tt.e St;.,Lawrenoe, easi: of Q .,.. €;bec CiJGy€ Elght years later.
on August 10: 18>39. C3Li`dinal Taschereau o±`±:..oialiy presided at the opening
ceremony, when the first train und.er steam pow-er made the run from Quebec
tô Ste.Anne de Beaupre. In 1899 the lîne vmas taken over by.the Quebeo
Bai|way Light and Power Company and was oompletely electrified.
The growtri of passenger traffio sinoe 1900 h&s tieen phenominal. At
the tîme the line vras eleçtrified only ninety thousand passenger`s a year
were carried, but by 1945 the nunbeF had incre,ased tQ two and a hal± million.
To provide the necessary servioe the railw&y operates thîrty-three tr&ins a
day in eaoh direotion. The motive pow©r equipment inoludes six electrio
engines, one Mogul type steam locomotîve, and nine §elf-propelled coaches.
On the feast of S€e.Anne this equipment together with aboüÉ forty passenger
tr&ilers, is oalled upon to transport between six and ten thousg.nd persons•~Ln each direc€ion beb`nreen Quebeo City and Ste.Ame Church. All the
m-®tive power and rolling stook of the former Q.R.L.& P. has now been taken
o-ver by the Canadian Nationali
The western terminus for Quebec Railway local tr:ains is Gare St.Paul
at Quebeo, just one block from thç Palais Union Stati®n. At ljimoilou
the station sez.viceg of ùhe priv&te oompany were Ôpemted jointly with the
Cg`nadian Nütioml, whiïe at Soin€s fùrther east, the sbatiQns, brightly
painted and very at€ractive. were operated solely by the Quebeo Raiï:wny.Light and Power. Àt some of these agents handled al} servioes, suoh t}s
b&ggage, eicpress and teï€gmms.

Pomrer di§tribution on the eleotrified Quebea Railway is by means of asingle` wire overheed, suspended fron wooden poles along the route. These
pol©s lean outward c`t a sufficient ang.le to elimimte the neoessity for
guy wires at all bub a few points® Origimliy all power was generatedat the Montmorenoy Pcwerhouse, near Montmo:®Ûnoy Fûll.3.. but boday additional
