Kawartha Lakes Railway

The Kawartha Lakes Railway was created on October 1, 1996 by the CPR as an internal shortline, a late 20th century method of local management and employee involvement utilizing an easing of restrictive union rules. It is still owned 100% by the CPR. There are no locomotives or other equipment owned or lettered for the KL. Diesels are "leased" from the CPR as required with maintenance included. Traffic is stagnant and its future is still undetermined. It is comprised of the Havelock Subdivision from Agincourt to the end of line at Mile 90.8, just past Havelock, and the entire Nephton Subdivision. There is also a small amount of former CNR track in Peterboro serving local industry including GE Canada.
