During a jaunt over to Lunenburg last weekend, we noticed that the Picton Castle was on the slip (aka the Lunenburg Marine Railway). I don't have much in the way of commentary, but here are the photos.

Once upon a time, the marine railway and adjacent boat yard were easily accessible by the general public, and one could just walk in and see what was going on. Unfortunately, there is now a fence and motorized gate that block easy access to this area, so the photos of the bow area are taken through the fence.
