Schreiber Beach Upgrades - Public Announcement

The Township of Schreiber is excited to announce that infrastructure upgrades have commenced on Schreiber Beach: As part of our partnership with Trans Canada Trail (TCT) and the Lake Superior Watershed Conservancy (LSWC), approximately $90,000 will be allocated towards the project over 2016 and 2017.  Upgrades are not limited to but include the installation of a new composting toilet, bear-proof garbage cans, new picnic tables, new signage and a new signage kiosk.

Furthermore, we are very excited to announce that the Schreiber Signature portion of the project is now underway: The Schreiber Beach Gazebo will be transformed to create an interpretive experience using the front and back of the gazebo panels. The interpretive panels will tell visitors the story of Isbester’s Landing and its transformation into the community we know and love today. The panels will include a “You are Here” map of the Schreiber area as well as a second map showing the LSWT Northshore region. On the backside of the interpretive panels, historic photographs of Schreiber heritage will be featured.

The Township of Schreiber invites all residents to visit the Schreiber Beach to check out some of the already installed upgrades. The completion of the LSWT Schreiber Beach access point upgrades is set for the summer 2017.

Scuba Divers Search For Steam Locomotive 694
On June 10th 1910, steam locomotive 694 crashed into Lake Superior . The steam locomotive’s engine, tender and two cars derailed and slid down a 65 foot embankment into Lake Superior after striking rocks that had fallen onto the tracks. The head end crew consisting of an Engineer, Fireman and Brakeman, from Schreiber all perished in the accident. Today, there are 7 D10 Engine’s in existence, of the 502 overall.  The Canadian Pacific Railway took the Class D10 Engine off the roster in July 1910. 

This August the Lake Superior Steam Locomotive Group and the Municipal Township of Schreiber are working with Discovery Charters to discover this historical artifact. Experienced scuba divers from Southern Ontario and Discovery Charters from Rossport Ontario have offered to carry out the search for the wreck. Doug Stefurak from the Lake Superior Steam Locomotive Group will be accompanying them on their expedition due to his knowledge of the accident and the local landscape.

Examining past news articles has led them to believe that the engine is in about 200 feet of water and approximately 45 miles east of Schreiber Ontario . The purpose of this diving expedition is to locate the underwater salvage of steam locomotive 694 and to photograph the numbers on the engine to verify it. At this time, nothing will be removed from the site.

*Staff will be videotaping the excursion for documentary purposes.
