Overnight we crossed more of the Shield, passing small communities where the trains have to be requested to stop. We moved to -6 GMT. By breakfast we were still passing lakes and forests at Auden, a busy logging centre and home to the indigenous Ojibway people.

At 09:53 we passed the east bound Canadian, Train 2 bound for Toronto, having left Vancouver last Friday.

By lunch we had reached Sioux Lookout, the home of the Ojibway people who used the nearby hills as lookouts for marauding Sioux Indians. We refuelled here.

A highlight of the afternoon was travelling for 30 minutes along the edge of an unnamed lake.

Winnipeg was a refuelling crew change stop as well as first chance to use Wi-Fi on the journey. Our next opportunity will probably be when we arrive in Vancouver.
