I rode what was likely the last passenger train to travel that line. The Scotian Railroad Society ran an excursion to Musquodoboit Harbour. I think the year was 1966, but I may be off by year or two. I was just a kid at the time so don’t recall a lot of the details but I remember being excited to roll along the shore of Halifax Harbour by train. It was one of a series of excursions the group ran in cooperation with CN in the mid-to-late 60s, mostly to destinations that had lost their passenger trains like Musquodoboit, Lunenburg and Pictou but they did run one to Kentville on the DAR using old CPR heavyweight coaches. None of these trips could be completed today.
