This is the last post for the Beachburg Sub. I am in a situation where many factors are preventing me from giving this blog the attention I feel it needs. I am just not able to get out there trackside and I don't see this changing anytime soon. I also have a number of work/community/school/family commitments that are taking up the lion's share of my time.
More than anything, I am trying to achieve some sort of balance in my life in the midst of the pandemic and this has required sacrifices. Sadly, this blog is one of those things that I love to do, but I just don't have any material or time left for it.
The rail situation in Ottawa is bleak, just as it was when I first began blogging years ago. If anything, it's gotten worse. This is not a place where one can reasonably expect to railfan and blog about contemporary railways with any regularity.
So, I will just say thank you to everyone who has contacted me over the years. I will still try to get out trackside and share my photos in other forums, but it won't be here. I am going to leave this blog up, just for the sake of those who wish to read older posts. Maybe at some point in the future, I will be able to pick this up again. So, let's leave the door open a crack. Never say never.
But, for now, I'm calling it a day.
