Notes:
The Ontario Car Ferry company was formed in 1905 in a joint venture between the Grand Trunk Railway and the Buffalo, Rochester and Pennsylvania Railroad. The two ferries based in Cobourg also perfomed the secondary function of taking passengers and sometimes their cars across Lake Ontario. This first ferry, named the Ontario No. 1 was launched in April 1907 and made her first trip with Captain Forrest on November 20th from Charlotte the port for Rochester, New York with a full load of 28 cars of coal.
