Lac-Megantic: Tourist train's visit a part of devastated town's recovery

(Source: Toronto Star, October 1, 2013)

LAC-MEGANTIC — In “a step towards reclaiming our town,” the mayor of Lac-Mégantic announced Tuesday that trains will return to the Quebec town later this month, the first time since the derailment disaster that killed 47 and wiped out a swath of the downtown core.

A regional train called the Orford Express will carry an estimated 5,000 people to Lac-Mégantic beginning Oct. 14, part of a tourist attraction that takes riders on routes throughout Quebec.
