History / Biographical
The London and Port Stanley Railway Company (L&PSR) was incorporated by a group of prominent London, Ontario citizens in May 1853. It commenced operations in September 1856. Initially, the railway line proved successful as it generated enough business in Port Stanley, Ontario to result in the construction of a port and other facilities that were regularly visited by American shipping lines. During the summer, the L&PSR became a popular route for city dwellers looking to escape from the heat to the beaches of Lake Erie. Passenger traffic plummeted following the Second World War after reaching a peak of 1.1 million in 1943. The end of gas rationing and more use of the automobile caused the end of passenger service on February 1, 1957. Effective January 1, 1966, the line became part of the Canadian National Railways (CNR). The City of London had traded the line to CNR in exchange for property elsewhere in the municipality.
Custodial History
Donated to London Room likely by the estate of Stanley Shantz of London or was purchased at auction from the estate. Transferred to ECA by London Room.
Scope and Content

1 photograph : b&w
Scope and Content
Two copies of a black and white photograph showing London and Port Stanley Railway locomotive L-1 pulling a freight train composed of coal and tanker cars northbound from the L & PS main Port Stanley station in August, 1940. The King George VI Lift Bridge, inaugurated a year earlier in May, 1939, is visible. The Purdom Cottage and pedestrian bridge across the Hill Crest ravine are visible in the background. View is looking southeast. A note verso reads: "L & PS box cab #1 was captured by photographer George Harris leaving Port Stanley for St. Thomas with a freight train in Aug. 1940. L & PS #1 is a 60 ton box cab built by GE in March 1915. After the railway was de-electrified #1 was displayed at Rectory St. in London until CN donated it to Scie-Tech in Ottawa in 1967. Now back at St. Thomas it is a fine example of the restoration that the [Elgin County Railway] museum is undertaking on all its exhibits. Photo courtesy of Keith Sirman."
