A Railfanning trip up the Island Falls Subdivision north to the end of steel can't be complete without taking a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made to the Railway Workers laying rail, building bridges, & running trains through the remote north. At the south end of Moosonee Yard stands a Memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives building & running the Island Falls Subdivision. Engraved on the Memorial is Rudyard Kipling's "The Sons of Martha", a truly fitting poem for such an important monument.
