The Big Chute marine railway, a National Historic Site near Port Severn, Ontario, Canada, is unique in North America. Instead of relying on a standard lock system to carry watercraft through the 17.7 m change in elevation at this point on the Trent-Severn Waterway, boats are secured by slings on a large carriage, which moves along a railway track. The boats are lifted out of the water, carried over the waterfall and gently placed into the water again.
