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.

History / Biographical
The Canada Southern Railway constructed a route from Buffalo to Detroit, through St. Thomas, in 1872. By that time, the London and Port Stanley Railway had been operating in the area for over 15 years, so it was the respondibility of the Canda Southern Railway to protect the diamond where they crossed the London and Port Stanley Railway tracks. For this they built a mechanically interlocked system of signals and switches which were controlled from the BX Tower, located a few hundred feet east of the London and Port Stanley tracks. Levers in the tower allowed the operator to remotely operate switches and signals via a system of control rods that snaked along the ground near the tower.
Scope and Content
BX Tower on Moore Street in St. Thomas, Ontario. This tower served as the interlocking tower for the London and Port Stanley Railway and the Michigan Central Railroad, as well as their subsidiaries and successors.
