Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Champlain and St. Lawrence Railroad was a historic railway in Lower Canada and one of the first railways built in British North America. The C&SL was financed by Montreal entrepreneur and brewery owner, John Molson. It was intended as a portage road to connect the St. Lawrence River valley with Lake Champlain, cutting time from the trip between Montreal and New York. Construction began in January, 1835 when surveyors determined the line would run from St. John on the Richelieu River to the nearest point on the St. Lawrence at La Prairie, 14 miles upriver from Montreal.show more
