Top 13 Hudson Bay Railroad Facts -1910 Video

The Hudson Bay Line has been in the news since nearly 20 sections of track were washed away or damaged by melting floodwater from two late spring blizzards. Churchill waits for news from the government on plans to reach agreements with first nations groups and owner Omnitrax on the sale of the railroad and subsequent repairs. Time is running out for getting anything done before the winter freeze sets in.

This video provides 13 facts about the development and construction of the now very infamous Hudson Bay Line to Churchill! Kind of cool to dig up this vintage video. Enjoy!

Churchill Railway Limbo – Video

The Hudson Bay Line is still in limbo with the Port of Churchill still up for sale by Omnitrax. This video was earlier in the discovery process of just what the next steps should be to repair and reinstate train service to Churchill. Churchill residents and town officials are getting fed up with the same old rhetoric they are being fed from Omnitrax and the Canadian Government! We’re hoping for a speedy resolution to the crisis.

Churchill Video of the Week – Macri’s Whales

This throwback video features the original Sea North Tours founder MIke Macri and his thoughts on the majestic beluga whales of the Churchill estuaries. Mike has since sold Sea North and is “gone fishin” after decades of running the best beluga whale watching outfit in Churchill. I’ve spent many summers with Mike and his family and they are truly missed in the Churchill community. However, thousands of belugas are still returning to Churchill every summer and after interpreting their sounds via a hydrophone, they all miss Mike and the family as well!

Underwater Beluga Cams – Two Worlds

Here are two video cam views into the lives of the beluga whales in Churchill, which by all accounts seem to be very different worlds indeed. Life below the surface of the Churchill River and the Hudson Bay is serene and a cacophony of communication between the whales all at once. Above the surface, whales feed and glide through the water while often investigating whale watching zodiacs. The mammals come close to the vessels and ride in the slipstream of bubbles flowing from the engines. The two worlds of the beluga whales merge together and provide travelers one of the most incredible wildlife experiences on Earth!
