Coalition for Algoma Passenger Trains P3
In 1918, the Group of Seven painted their way to fame from boxcars that travelled the Algoma Central Railway. The coalition used this little-known fact as a theme for an excursion that retraced the Group of Seven’s path. Activities included hiking into the landscape that inspired the group’s art, photography, oil and water-colour painting workshops, and musical entertainment. The tour was overwhelmingly successful and has become an annual event.
