Description
The railway was originally incorporated as Gananoque & Rideau Railway on 15 February 1871, but construction did not begin until 1883 due to lack of money. The original 5-kilometre (3.1 mi) line opened 1 January 1884. The company name was changed to Thousand Islands Railway four months later. A swing bridge over the mouth of the Gananoque River was constructed in 1894 to provide service to businesses on the east side of the river. The original junction between the Thousand Island Railway and the Grand Trunk Railway was moved 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) east in 1902 to a flatter location. The Thousand Islands Railway was merged into the Canadian National Railway in 1958. Passenger service ended in 1962; freight service ended in 1995. The line was dismantled in 1997.

Neither the train nor the building are abandoned, but still there for photo ops if you wish!

i used to have to cross these tracks when they were still in use, to get to school. they had an off line that went straight in back of the old stelco plant that was on river street. it's also since been torn down and the site where the factory stood is now being turned into a dog park. the employee parking lot is now town houses. i can still remember the constant banging of the steel plant a
