According to the Canadian Trackside Guide, Collins is at mp 21.1 and Savant Lake is at mp 76.6 of the Allanwater Sub, so it's 55.5 miles by rail. Is there some reason you're asking? It looks like the track maintainer jobs may have been filled.

Yes i had applied for these jobs and my application was being reviewed. Oh well i will keep on applying with CN!
Can you tell me where this link or its Homepageis as i have another application up for review?
I was just curious as to what Savant Lake and Collins, Ontario was like ie: size of them and housing/stores/motels or where you would stay if CN hired you to work up in Northern Ontario?
Thank you for this tip!
