Nice looking train and coaling tower.
You need one of these to accommodate all those who paddle the Missinaibe River to Moosonee and take the ON back home.
I really like the tank car. Who made it, or is it home made?
tank car is specially done. I bought as is. Great paint job!
Bob O, love that special service flat car, just need another canoe or two and a special service passenger car for the paddlers.
sounds good - where can I get this stuff?

Now have 3 more Lionel ON boxcars in excellent condition. Makes for a cool train!
What engine is that in the photo? Sorry for late post, but just began my 2 month summer stay at a cottage in North Bay, Ontario, where the Ontario Northland used to have passenger service. I have a Lionel Ont Northland freight consist. My loco is an RS 3 diesel, 6-28543, but looking for a more modern unit.
MTH Premier GP 38-2 - 2004.
"O.N. Rail" That's awesome.
I never liked the "other". I seriously thought it was a joke; a "con" and that a "real name" would be released later.
Interesting and different coaling tower. Is the ON a post steam road, or did steam once run on it?
Wow, I've never heard of the Ontario Northland but I'd sure like to have a complete train like you have. I love the paint scheme and the markings. Very nice looking and I agree, that coaling tower is really nice too. Is it scratch built?
purchased coaling tower from a guy at York. Sorry can't recall his name. Believe he is from Atlanta. Got a grain elevator as well with my name on it.
MTH just released a new Ontario Northland GP38-2 diesel locomotive in a new paint scheme.
Look for it on the MTH Trains Facebook or twitter pages.
I think the logo and color scheme is great. Wish Lionel would make a LionelChief Plus unit. That fits my price range and features, and would be a great upgrade from my very basic RS-3 unit from 2003. (6-28543).
It was built around early 1900s from North Bay to Moosonee
The name changed mid 1940s so as not to be confused with the Texas and New Orleans railroad markings
ONR had a small but varied steam roster that included switchers ,ten wheelers, consolidations, Mikes, Pacifics and the largest steam locos 4 Northern locos
Unfortunately none have been offered in any scale as of yet
Personally I find the first generation FP7s to be one of the most attractive paint schemes of any era
Here are a few pics of the 1100s and early diesels
