On May 21, 1897 the company was renamed to '''The Ottawa & New York Railway''' and was to build from Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) to Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario) as well as to construct a bridge crossing over the St. Lawrence River at Cornwall. Construction began on August 23 and was quickly completed, opening on July 29, 1898, although the first revenue train operated the year before from Crysler (Crysler, Ontario) to Finch (Finch, Ontario). Before the opening day, the company was purchased by its American partner on June 13, 1898 and had dropped 'The' from its title. St. Lawrence River crossing at Cornwall The crossing of the St. Lawrence River at Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) was the single most important part of the construction of the Ottawa to Tupper Lake route. At the time of its opening, there were no other bridge crossings between Queenston and Coteau Landing. The crossing consisted of two bridges, one span over the south channel, most of it being in the United States, made up of three Pratt trusses, and the second over the north channel, all in Canada, being of a cantilever design as well as a swing span over the Cornwall Canal. After 1957 The bridges at Cornwall (Cornwall, Ontario) were removed by the St. Lawrence Seaway, the south span in 1958 and the north span in 1965. Meanwhile Canadian National Railways purchased the Canadian portion of the route in April 1957 and used the rails to build a new hump yard in Montreal. They left a section from Hawthorne (List of Ottawa neighbourhoods#South End) to the Terminal Avenue Yard in Ottawa, and then by the end of 1957 reopened a portion from Hawthorne to Ramsayville (List of Ottawa neighbourhoods#Gloucester). This relaid section was removed in 1972. The remaining track in Ottawa remained in service until 2002 when the Ottawa Central Railway removed the tracks opposite the Canada Science and Technology Museum to the yard.

mutiny of 1919. After the Kronstadt rebellion the Bolshevik government lost interest in maintaining the battleships, and they were laid up in November–December 1923. The '''''Gangut''-class''' battleships were the first dreadnoughts begun for the Imperial Russian Navy before World War I. They had a convoluted design history involving several British (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) companies, evolving requirements, an international design competition, and foreign protests. Their role was to defend the mouth of the Gulf of Finland against the Germans, who never tried to enter, so the ships spent their time training and providing cover for minelaying (Minelayer) operations. Their crews participated in the general mutiny of the Baltic Fleet after the February Revolution in 1917, and joined the Bolsheviks the following year. The Russians were forced to evacuate their naval base at Helsinki after Finland became independent in December 1917. The ''Gangut''-class ships led the first contingent of ships to Kronstadt even though the Gulf of Finland was still frozen.
