We followed the CN from Campbellton to Mont-Joli, finding only a hy-rail on the line, but found a local preparing to head West at Matane on the branch. At the end of the day my daughter helped me find and record a train leaving Riviere-du-Loup but we didn't catch the symbol.
(map) Matapedia is at the end of the Restigouche River at the mouth of the Baie des Chaleurs and is the junction of the CN and the CFG.
(map) Matane is on the south shore of the Saint-Lawrence and is the landing point for the CN railcar ferry from Baie Comeau.
(map) Riviere-du-Loup is the highway junction of the 20 and the 85, splitting between the Gaspe and New Brunswick.
A Westbound pulls through Riviere-du-Loup as my five year old daughter takes her first-ever train video (and asked to take more!!).
