Incline railway powerhouse and observation tower, Port Stanley, ca. 1880. William Fraser built the incline railway in the 1870s to allow guests at the Fraser House hotel on Fraser Heights to conveniently travel to and from the main beach. The observation tower was built adjacent to the incline railway as an attraction for visitors. The incline railway was originally powered by a steam locomotive. It was purchased by the London and Port Stanley Railway and electrified in 1915. The incline railway ceased operating ca. 1963 when its open cars were deemed unsafe and the owners decided it was not cost effective to convert to closed cars. File includes:

The Incline Railway at Port Stanley, Ontario, ca. 1920. The railway carried passengers from Port Stanley Beach to the picnic and amusement grounds on Fraser Heights (also know as Invererie Heights and Picnic Hill). The basic fee at this time was 5 cents per one-way ride. The first version of the incline railway was constructed at this location in the 1870s by William Fraser, owner of the Fraser House Hotel. The railway was electrified in 1915; previously it had been powered by steam. The railway stopped operating ca. 1963 when open passenger cars were declared illegal for safety reasons, and the owners decided it would be too expensive to retrofit the service with closed cars. The tracks and some other infrastructure remained in place for many years after the service was abandoned. File includes:
