I know today the area suffers from lack of population, but that has a lot to do with the current poor connection to the rest of the province. How did we wind up here? It seems it would have been a natural route for travel and settlements between Halifax and Cape Breton.
When I was a little kid in the '60s I have a vague memory of seeing a train on tracks near the Lawrencetown beach area, which have long ago become a trail. I believe it was officially abandoned around 1980 but had only been used very sporadically for a couple of decades prior.
