On the Railway at Big Chute

Photos from the Trent Severn:
I had the opportunity to travel through the Trent Severn from Georgian Bay to Lake Simcoe at the end of September this year.  It is quite an experience and I highly recommend it as a fun and relaxing way to spend a few days if you're living in Ontario. More information on the historic waterway and canal system can be found here. The waterway is so "magnificent it has been named 'one of the finest interconnected systems of navigation in the world'. Some photos are less artistic than I usually post but they have some interesting tidbits and facts to go along with them so I figure it might be an interesting series.

About this photo:
At Big Chute (Lock 44) a huge device, the Marine Railway, lifts boats out of the water, over land, and returns them to the water on the other side of the hill. Large boats are raised on straps out of the water before the railway device begins moving. This photo does NOT do justice to what this is all about. Please, check out this amazing set of photos here: http://www.edto.net/photo_bigchute.htm if you're intersted. It's worth a peak to actually see what it is all about. Big Chute is loacted here (map).
