I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.
This CPR bridge was built about 1906.
Railway bridge in Belleville. Built by the Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR) in 1912, now used by CP rail from Toronto to Ottawa through Smith Falls.
A spacious public parking lot gives public access to the K&P Trail on Sydenham Road. The trail is suitable for walking, cycling, wagons, wheel chairs, or tricycles.
It is easy to forget that noisy polluting steam engines once chuged along this trail over 135 years ago. Looking east.
The CPR tracks a Titchborne. This is a heavily used rail line from Toronto to Ottawa, the south track is the active one, the north one is a siding.
Wooden trestle bridge over the CPR tracks.
1.3 km. into the K&P trail to Kingston. The original railway bed here was completed in 1885 starting in Kingston. The railway began to shut down sections of track in 1962 and completely in 1986. OFSC trail E105A
Railway bridge with 2.7 m clearance. About 8 ft. 9 inches. That has to be a record low clearance for a public road.
Scenic water fall in Parry Sound harbour below the CPR bridge.
End of the line. The Canadian Pacific railway (CP) is being removed. This was the trans-continental line, Stafford Siding, double tracked just to the south of this point.
This little bridge was built in 1927 by CPR who leased the K&P railway in 1913 for 999 years. The original bridge and tracks were built in 1875.
There is a lot of empty unused land in the city. Looking south from the K&P Trail.
The CPR rail line at Bob's Lake Road.
Former Canada Central Railway (CCR), later CP railway bed from Renfrew to Arnprior built by 1876, now being torn up in 2013. This section of track was originally built as a wide gauge, but it was converted to the standard gauge in 1880. It was the last railway to do so in Canada. For a few years, it had a third track to handle both gauges. It originally ran from Brockville to Carleton Place, Renfrew and ended at Mattawa north west of Ottawa.
Another railway disappears. CP railway Renfrew junction with the K&P railway.
CP rail bridge, part of the CP trans-continental line built about 1885. Now abandoned.

The CPR rail line here is getting some maintenance. It is a heavily used rail line today.
CPR railway, it is heavily used. This is their Toronto to Ottawa tracks. On the Crow Lake Road, looking east.
North end of the Kingston and Pembroke Railway (K&P) and the K&P trail to Kingston. This end is also known as the Millennium Trail. The railway was completed by 1885. It was intended to go to Pembroke, but the Canada Central Railway had already made that link by 1876, so they joined ends here. The K&P was taken over by CPR in 1901, and began closing down in 1962 and closed completely in 1986 Looking SW.
CP Transcontinental Railway. Obviously not using this route any more. Their trains now go to Toronto, north through Parry Sound, to Sudbury then west.
Old iron water tower built for steam engines on the CP line. It now commorates the long rail history of Pembroke with a mural. The steel for the legs was made by Carnegie Steel.
