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.

Scope and Content
Colour aerial photograph showing the Elgin Handles Limited, St. Thomas factory and surrounding area, ca. 1975. View is looking north from Kains Street, and shows the London and Port Stanley Railway tracks from the Barwick Street Bridge to Kains Street. View includes part of the former L & PS Station located across the tracks from the Elgin Handles Ltd. plant: this station was repurposed as a freight office/shed when the L & PS constructed a new station at Talbot Street in 1920-1921. The former Wabash Hotel is partially visible, surrounded by trees near the junction of the L & PS and Wabash/CN Railway tracks. Immediately north of the hotel is a cleared area where the former Grand Trunk Railway/Wabash Railroad Station was located prior to its demolition in 1967. This image provides a good view of the "Wabash Diamond", an area around the former Wabash Railroad Station where several rail lines converge forming a diamond shape.
