The Canadian Shield...700 miles of engineering impossibilities said Cornelius Van Horne.  A pine tree grows out to the rocks in this pretty little cut just south of Dockmure....granite on both sides, and trees everywhere. Only the power has changed in the last 100 years. The determination to build this railroad with the equipment of the day still captures the imagination.
