This day in Railroad History

July 21, 1836
The Champlain and St. Lawrence Railroad (C&SL) opened to great fanfare. C&SL was one of the first railways built in British North America. The C&SL was financed by Montreal entrepreneur and brewery owner, John Molson. It was intended as a portage road to connect the St. Lawrence River valley with Lake Champlain, cutting time from the trip between Montreal and New York. Over 300 guests crowded the passenger cars ior the first run. The locomotive, Dorchester, was unable to handle the load, therefore the two first-class coaches were hauled by the locomotive while the remaining cars were hauled by teams of horses. Canadian National Railways continues to operate the majority of this route, running from an interchange connection with the D&H (now CP) at Rouses Point, NY.
