Has anybody here taken the Tshiuten train trip over QNSL rails, 14 hours north into Labrador? I want to do so this summer but it's not exactly easy to reach even the Sept Iles station.

I covered the route on a speeder excursion in 2005 and we took three days each way. Very interesting and enjoyable and I want to return and do it on the Tshiuten passenger train some time. QNSL rails end in Labrador City and Tshiuten rails begin there.
This would be a great adventure.....I’ve always wanted to do it!

Reaching Sept Iles is really not that difficult. There’s flight from Montreal and Quebec City but can be on the expensive side.

‘Intercar’ Bus has a daily run from Montreal (Dep 6am) Quebec (Dep 9:45am) and arr in Sept Iles at 8pm.

It’s a very scenic drive along the north shore of the St Lawrence so why not take VIA to Quebec City.... rent a car there and drive to Sept Iles. Google says about 640km and 7 ½ hrs. Roads are very good.

Here’s a link to a recent documentary on a Tshiuten ride:

Ans to give you an Idea of the country you’d be passing through….hears a link to a “Trans Labrador Highway’ trip I did several years ago.

There was an article on a TRT trip in the December 2016 issue of Railpace magazine. Pretty interesting stuff.
