MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!! On September 28, 2008 come take the Algoma Passenger Train from Sault Ste.

Come out and experience this once in a lifetime opportunity!!! How many of you have ever taken the train? It is an amazing experience and the train ride will be absolutely gorgeous in September.

Also, if you would like more information on the passenger train that leaves from Sault Ste. Marie and goes all the way to Hearst, please contact me. It is a beautiful ride, as well as an economical and environmentally friendly way to travel.
