Bayside Canadian Railway

Recommended Posts

Stumbled across this odd little railway on one of the freight industry Journals, would make an ideal micro layout for some one who is VERY space limited.. Consists of about 100ft of track with a road/rail tractor and two flat cars.. But is is fully functional and due to a strange quirk in the US Jones act it serves a commercial purpose!

Google street map has views of the entire "railway" at "Kloosterboer Bayside, 136 Champlain Drive, Bayside, NB E5B 2Y2

That’s fascinating, and a rule that just sounds so Irish! With a bit of imagination, not hard to envisage a Brexit or post-partition scenario Irish line like that….’.any cattle transported by rail across the land frontier go duty-free etc’ - cue a 100 yard stub of the SLNCR crossing the border !
