TORONTO, Aug. 19 /CNW/ - The inaugural voyage of the Dream Catcher Express, an exciting train excursion between North Bay and Temagami, is fast approaching.

In partnership with local hospitality operators, the Dream Catcher Express will offer passengers a variety of unique experiences including the romance of rail travel, vibrant fall colours and a sampling of aboriginal culture.

Ontario Northland and its partners, the City of North Bay, the Town of Temagami and the North Bay Chamber of Commerce, will join to reveal the exciting variety of activity options available to individuals participating in this excursion at a press conference being held:
