Trains reach Parry Sound
Beginning of the James Bay Railway in operation.
The portion of the James Bay Railway between Québec Siding, on the Canada Atlantic Railway, and Parry Sound, making the first direct railway connection for that town, is now in operation. It has not yet been handed over to Mackenzie & Mann, but is being operated by Johnson, Beveridge & Co., the contractors. Four trains per day are run over the five-mile stretch, connecting with the Canada Atlantic trains between Ottawa and Depot Harbor. It is said to be the intention of the company to construct their line as far as the Magnetawan River this year, 34 miles north of Parry Sound, on the way to Sudbury.
