In Memoriam

On 30 December 1999, at approximately 1900 eastern standard time, CN Ultratrain No. 783 was travelling westward from Saint-Romuald, QC, on the north track of the Saint-Hyacinthe Sub. Near Mont-Saint-Hilaire, cars from train 783 derailed, fouling the adjacent south track. CN train No 306, which was travelling eastward on the south track at the time, collided with the cars of train 783 as they derailed. There was an explosion and some cars burned for more than four days, creating a smoke plume about 1,500 feet high. The two crew members on train 306 were fatally injured in the accident.

This stone was erected at the accident site in loving memory of Paul Davis and Yvan Thériault. Picture taken on April 7th, 2002.
