Play train in park. Schreiber, ON 7/21/2005 Wolf Kirchmeir
One of the strangest railways was known as the "Peg
Leg" for its monorail type of construction.
It ran between the GTR Ridgeway station 1 1/2 miles to Crystal Beach Amusement
Although the park itself and its rides including a train, were around
for decades the
Peg Leg was short-lived 1896-1898 not making enough money to sustain it.
147 at station.
Elevated monorail track through farm.

This minature park train was built c.1905 by the famous Allan Herschell
Company, North Tonawanda, NY.
It first operated on Toronto Island for many years after which George
Cooper brought it to Nepean where it operated for several years in Britannia
Park. He then moved it to Orillia (c.1958-1998) where it continued operating
for many years under the auspices of the Rotary Club in Couchiching Beach
Park until its age and boiler condition caused its retirement. Replaced
by a wider gauge "steam" appearance train. It then went back
home to its origin. The Herschell
Carrousel Factory Museum located on the original site.
