At Severn Falls, the Severn river flows into Georgian Bay with a drop of 18m due to a dam built there for a hydro-electric generating station. The Severn river is part of the the 386km Trent-Severn Waterway linking Lake Ontario with with Georgian Bay. This marine railway was built to get the boats over the dam. In the picture only small pleasure boats are seen, however it can carry big yachts too. I put a picture of the rail car with a bigger boat to the Workshop.

Interesting shot here, Barnabas, of a technology I've never seen before! The WS Helps me understand the mechanics of it as well. This shot is also well composed, with the family watching the railway operate and creating a nice lead-in to the shot. Thanks for sharing it!

This is a good documentary shot of the way boats are moved. Your WS also adds more to the understanding. The POV is well chosen, the light and sharpness are very gopod.
