Forgotten Railways in Eastern Ontario is a Web-based Documentary Series that highlights different railways in Eastern Ontario that may have been discarded or repurposed by the different cities, towns and Municipalities in Eastern Ontario.
The intended audience for this project is anyone who has an interest in trains, an interest on the history of the railways; also how the railways have made an impact, but mainly what has become of the railways in Eastern Ontario. The goal of this web-based documentary series is to educate and to bring awareness of the contribution that railways have made in Eastern Ontario. Also how the currently unused railways may have been forgotten for their contribution or even repurposed to further serve the community.
