Report On The Intercolonial Railway Exploratory Survey...
Hunter, Rose & Co.
Sandford Fleming’s report on the Intercolonial Railway documents part of the development of one of the most important railroads in Canada. The plan to build the line was part of the British North America Act of 1867 that created the Dominion of Canada. Fleming was in charge of the construction, and despite higher costs, the railroad was a success. The railway would exist until 1918, when it would be merged into the Canadian National Railway.
