While growing up in Newburgh I spent a lot of time on the Cataraqui Trail, long before it was known by such a name.
My parent's property backed onto the old rail line that cut through the village. The tracks were still there back in the 80's, but I don't recall ever seeing a train moving in either direction.
My brother and I and other neighbourhood kids used to play and bike up and down the old tracks all the time, jumping into ditches, getting wet and dirty in the process. Long story short, we enjoyed every minute of it.
