Steven Manders - Kingston & Pembroke Railway, Lost and Found

steve manders smSteven Manders has been working closely with Later Life Learning. He is the author of  "Kingston & Pembroke Railway, Lost and Found"

I am retired but researching many of the old railways of eastern Ontario both in archives and especially with boots on the ground. I have examined 61 railways to date, found 75 original still standing stations, and photographed them, posted photos on Google Earth, each with a short history of what is in the picture. I have examined the K&P from end to end, and studied some critical sections of it and a few other local railways with a metal detector looking for artifacts which has been very informative. I have examined many of the mines that were critical to getting the K&P built along with the logging industry. This includes 7 tramways and 3 un-named canals to date.

I have given 7 presentations on the subject to the local historical societies and I will be giving a presentation to the Lennox and Addington Historical society next January (2017). I will be giving a second presentation to the Canadian Railroad Historical Association in December (2016).
