Scope and Content
London & Port Stanley Railway- A southbound train pauses at the small passenger shelter at Union, Ontario, on April 20, 1952. The three cars, #16, 23 and 18 (Kuhlman, 1909, St. Louis, 1907) were acquired from the Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. in 1941, with coach 21, part of a 4-set purchase, to handle extra wartime passenger service on the L. & PS Railway. Two of the cars are preserved at the Illinois Railway Museum. Car #23 is now part part of a house at 34 Alberta Street, Grand Bend. But the Station survives in its original location, hosting passengers on the diesel-powered Port Stanley Terminal Rail, which operates the southern portion of the former L & PS Railway. Port Stanley is located on Lake Erie, about 50 km. south of London, Ontario.
