More info


The Sydney and Louisburg Railway was a 39-mile common carrier linking the steel-making centre of Sydney with the port of Louisbourg on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island by way of Glace Bay and Mira Bay, with branches to various coal mines. The S&L was completed in 1895 by the Dominion Coal company, which after 1928 was known as the Dominion Steel and Coal Corporation (DOSCO). On July 7, 1967, DOSCO was replaced by a new crown corporation called the Cape Breton Development Corporation (DEVCO), and the remnants of the S&L became known as the Devco Railway. By late 2000, coal hauling by rail on Cape Breton Island was little more than a memory, with only a single mine still operating and the Devco Railway hauling its output to a nearby power generation plant. All told, the S&L owned a total of 1,525 steel, 50-ton and 60-ton hopper cars, all of which were built in Trenton, Nova Scotia, by the Eastern Car Company, Limited, between 1935 and 1951.
