July 3: Ending 71 years of service, the Caribou, a.k.a. the Newfie Bullet pulls into the St. John’s railway station for the very last time at eight o’clock this morning. The diesel engine has pulled four coaches, two dining cars, eight sleepers and a baggage car across the 881.599 kilometres (547.8 miles) of narrow gauge track. The train earned the nickname “Bullet” because it was so slow, taking 27 hours to cross the island of Newfoundland. Folks will now ride CN Roadcruisers—a fancy name for buses. The Bullet will become a tourist attraction at the Coastal Railway Museum in St. John's.
