Rod C. Brazier, author of Railroading Muskoka, will present a talk at Muskoka Discovery Centre, October 27 at 6 PM. The 2-hour presentation is by donation.
Now available at the Muskoka Steamship & Historical Society retail shops at the Discovery Centre and Steamship Ticket Office: Railroading Muskoka by Rod C. Brazier. The 152-page narrative was inspired by a series of articles written for Muskoka Reflections, the Society’s quarterly magazine distributed to members.
The full panoply of railroad development in Muskoka is covered – the good and the disappointing. From steam to diesel, Brazier relates the impact railroads had on development of the region and on the steamships used to transport goods and people.
Railroad and steam buffs – and lovers of Muskoka history – can order a copy ($24.95) by calling 705.687.2115.
