Bolger Bridge, Ontario

This logging railway ran from Bolger Bridge on the CNR eastward for three miles, to Holt's Bay on Wahwashkesh Lake (where a sawmill was built), and took up again near where the Magnetawan River enters the north body of that lake. Locomotive and rolling stock were barged between the two railheads as required. Line was built in 1916.
