Smiths Falls Division Stations
Not including Smiths Falls proper.

Prescott Subdivision
Ottawa West to Prescott

Brockville Subdivision
Smiths Falls to Brockville

Cornwall Subdivision
Soulanges to Cornwall

Originally Glengarry and Storemont Ry.

Line opened in May 1915 from St-Polycarpe Junction (Soulanges) to Cornwall.
It was promptly leased to the CPR for 99 years. It was abandoned December 25, 1995.

Extra 8588 West looks to have lots of power for its short train! In fact, the 4 trailing units are all on idle.
They are deadheading on the Cornwall Swing to Vaudreuil for the Monday morning suburban trains.
Dorval, Sunday, July 14, 1968

4069_4070_1432_RS-10 St.Luc July 21, 1974. Unidentified RS-10 is for the Cornwall Swing.

On Sundays, we’d deadhead 3 commuter units backwards for him to set off at Vaudreuil for the eastbound commuter trains on Monday morning. We had them lifted eastbound by #58 on Friday and St. Luc would use them locally until Sunday’s #55. And often the Friday units were scattered all over the place, and 3 different units would go out on Sunday. LBC
