Left - Algoma Central Railway (ACR) Overhead on Hwy 17 north of Wawa. This once-important railway spur used to carry iron ore shipments from Wawa-area mines down to the docks at Michipicoten Harbour and coal shipments from Michipicoten Harbour into Wawa. All iron ore shipments leaving Wawa until 1960 had to be made by ship or by rail, as Wawa did not have an external road link to the rest of Ontario. As the mines around Wawa began to close in the subsequent decades, the railway declined in importance and was eventually abandoned altogether. The rails were lifted and the right-of-way was converted into an all-terrain vehicle trail. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
