     History
    The Hull–Chelsea–Wakefield Railway was a 33 km (20.5 mi) heritage railway in Quebec, Canada, running tourist trains through the scenic Gatineau Hills and beside the Gatineau River between Hull (and the tourist town of Wakefield, using a 1907 Swedish steam locomotive, and 1940s-built Swedish passenger cars.

    The line was closed by a 2011 track bed washout and since then the track has been torn out and the train sold and scrapped.

     Future Plans
    The locomotive has been sold to the Dalton Ecological Park to be put on display. Eight of the train cars have been destroyed and scrapped and one will be transported to Cantley QC to be used as a dining car for a chip stand.
