About the Algoma Central Railway

Route Map

The Algoma Central Railway (ACR) runs 296 miles throught relatively untouched northern Ontario wilderness from Sault Ste. Marie (or 'The SOO', from the pronounciation of the word 'Sault'), Ontario to Hearst, Ont. and 26 miles from the division point at Hawk Junction, ONT. to Michipicoten Harbour on Lake Superior. The ACR is mostly a freight railroad, but its passenger service has become world-famous because of its Agawa Canyon Tour Train. This daily excursion train travels 113 miles north from Sault Ste. Marie to the scenic Agawa Canyon park, which is only accessible by rail.
