THE Newfoundland Railway although now owned and operated as a Government facility, was originally built as a private undertaking, or a series of private undertakings, in the period 1893-1897. The lines were taken over by the Government in 1923 from the Reid Newfoundland Company and have been merged into one system consisting of a main line from Portaux-Basques to St. John's and certain branch lines of varying importance and chequered history, only a few of which are actually in operation.
