About the driving up on the abandoned railway tracks, last fall when we ran the river we came across a CN maintenance crew while portageing up on the railway bed and had a chat with them. CN apparently still owns that right of way and does apparently not allow any vehicles to use the track for liablity reasons.
While the odds of running into a CN maintenance crew is slim, keep this in mind if you drive up to the McDonalds on the track.
I have, like Geoff, never found the entrance to the tracks myself and always done the portage and hike up the track thing.
