Hogg’s Falls

Hoggs Falls

Hogg’s Falls

I recently had a chance to visit Hogg’s Falls just north of Flesherton Ontario. This seven meter high falls on the Boyne River was named for William Hogg.

It is very easy to get to – not so easy to get down to the river bed – especially in the winter. Caution is advised.


Engine 6593


This is Engine 6593 which happily pulls passenger cars full of tourists and train enthusiasts between Waterloo, St. Jacobs and Elmira.

I took this shot at the train yard in St. Jacobs. Built in 1957, it has been lovingly restored by the members of the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS).
