NS&T in the National Archives

I recently learned from noted Canadian railway historian Ralph Beaumont that the National Archives of Canada has – amongst its large collection of vintage railway photographs – many that show early scenes from the Niagara St. Catharines & Toronto Railway. Here’s a small sampling:

NF Boat Train - Archives photo.

StC Freight House - Archives photo.

NS&T 40 - National Archives photo.

Port Weller Tower - Archives photo.

Freight switching - Archives photo.

The photos tend to be from an era well before what I would model. But still, it’s a valuable collection that I would love to explore. Clearly, a road trip is in order!

(Thanks, Ralph!)
