Le p'tit train fait dérailler le tourisme

Tel que prévu, l’arrêt du train à vapeur Hull-Wakefield a un impact très important sur le tourisme dans la région de l’Outaouais.

Les hôteliers perdent des clients et les ventes de forfaits touristiques ont diminué de près de 40 %.

Toute l’industrie touristique outaouaise souffre de l’effet domino causé par l’arrêt du train touristique, le mois dernier, admet le président de Tourisme Outaouais, Jean Thiffault.

Le lundi 12 mai dernier, Jean Gauthier, le propriétaire du Train à vapeur Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield, célébrait ses 77 ans. À cet âge vénérable, on ne s'imagine pas que l'homme d'affaires venait de mettre en branle une saga qui allait mobiliser tout l'Outaouais.

Le grand gâchis
Pierre Allard, Le Droit - Le jeudi 12 juin 2008

Pourquoi la Compagnie des chemins de fer de l'Outaouais (CCFO) n'achète-t-elle pas le train Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield ? Si la survie du train comme outil touristique est tellement essentielle à la région, comme semblent l'affirmer Gatineau, Chelsea et La Pêche, les trois municipalités propriétaires de la CCFO, pourquoi ne pas l'acquérir, tout simplement ?

Les Amis du train à vapeur veulent que la Compagnie de chemin de fer de l'Outaouais (CCFO) soit régionalisée, qu'elle change de nom et que les gouvernements fédéral et provincial financent l'entretien de la voie ferrée.

OTTAWA - Supporters of the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield Steam Train say the train should be relaunched with more equipment and new stations and track so the line can also be used for a commuter train linking Wakefield to Ottawa's light rail network.

Go to Wakefield

The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Although the new light-rail plan will become a major improvement over what
we have now, it still does not go far enough. After all we have an unused
railway line that goes across the Ottawa River into the City of Gatineau
and extends to the Town of Wakefield. We should look into making use of
this railway line now that the Gatineau-Wakefield steam train is up for
sale.

Seven buyers eye $2.5-million steam train

Owner decides to sell after dispute with municipalities that own track
Dave Rogers, The Ottawa Citizen

Published: Tuesday, June 03, 2008 - direct link

Seven potential buyers have shown interest in the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield
Steam Train after it stopped operations indefinitely in May because of a
dispute between the owner and the municipalities that own the line on which
it runs.

Les pistes cyclables et le train à vapeur

Spécial au Droit

Les pistes cyclables et le train à vapeur
John E. Trent

On croit parfois que tout a été dit sur un sujet particulier. Tous les arguments ont été présentés et représentés. Le débat est clos. On peut passer à d’autres choses.

Il arrive que l’on ait tort.

Tel est le cas dans le débat sur les pistes cyclable et le train à vapeur. Maintenant que le train touristique Hull-Chelsea- Wakefield a quelques difficultés, les journaux commencent à se remplir encore une fois de lettres et d’articles favorisant les pistes cyclables comme alternatives au train.

Et encore une fois on doit redire pourquoi les pistes cyclables ne sont pas une alternative viable.
