Booth's Canada Atlantic Railroad, the worlds longest privately owned company, was sold to the Grand Trunk in 1905 for $14 million. Booth launched its construction in 1879, to speed his lumber to markets in northeastern American, via the Central Vermont Railway. The City of Ottawa thus found itself with a direct link to Boston. He later expanded the system west to Georgian Bay; this branch, which was complete in 1896, was known as the Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway. The whole system to Alburg, Vermont was then amalgamated as the Canada Atlantic Railway. (Trinnell. J.R. Booth). Fine. Item #30188
