The Portage Railway by Jeff Young & Peter Foley
“The Portage Railway” tells the story of the famous Huntsville and Lake of Bays Railway in the north Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada.
Promoted as “The smallest commercially operated railway in the world”, this charming 1.5 mile long narrow gauge railway provided a vital link between steamboats from Huntsville to the Lake of Bays.
This new book represents the culmination of years of painstaking research by the authors. It is a 204 page, large format 12” by 9” landscape book featuring more 300 photographs (85% previously unpublished), 8 detailed maps and 20 double-gatefold 9” by 18.5” scale drawings of the railway’s locomotives, rolling stock and structures.
