    Ron: first thing you want to do is check the Library for the book Lines of Country which maps all the railway lines and dates them.
    For the last 50 years, we've had ONT going straight north from North Bay and Algoma Central going North from Sault Ste Marie. CNR and CPR went basically east-west, CP along the lake and CN through the woods.
