DE-RAILED: THE NATIONAL DREAM
Local filmmaker Dan Nystedt boarded the Algoma Central Railway March 3rd to launch the filming of his upcoming documentary De-Railed: The National Dream. Through his travels across Canada he filmed success stories of independent community-owned short line railways in areas such as Saskatchewan, Vancouver Island and Ontario.
The film is slated to be released in the Spring of 2011. This locally produced film will highlight the success stories, struggles, policies and politics of independent, short line, passenger rail services in Canada. Featured lines in Northern Ontario; the Algoma Central Railway and Ontario Northland Railway will serve as a microcosm for the larger story development.
