I love interrurbans, too bad i never grew up in the 40's, we used to have one that wen't to Selkirk, Man to Winnipeg, but i heard the Grand River Railway and Lake Erie & Northern were special.

These were the good ol' days, now all we have is polluting automobiles! My granparents told me many stories of how good the electric streetcars were, we should've followed Toronto, but i guess we chose to not give our people any alternative and have auto only transportation, hopefully we will get a mayor who cares about it's people and make an electric LRT system, which we need in the 21st century to move ahead, not bus rapid transit!

Good evening again guys , bit boared tonight so I was playing with the scanner and some old photo's found a couple good ones so here's one for everyone's purusal.

An NS&T interurban car preparing to cross the Welland canal bridge #1 at Port Weller.This line was run by the NS&T line as a mostly freight branch as they moved slab steel and large bulky items to the Port Weller dry docks which are just on the other side of the bridge, the passenger casr carried the workers to and from the plant. From the OERHA collection not sure of the picture taker however.

Afternoon Lars , loved the book cover both here and at the bar Thumbs Up [tup] That mutant started out life as a Baldwin AS16 . It was rebuilt using EMD guts I think from a GP18 and the car body and dynamic breaks etc were grafted onto the baldwin frame. I don't think the C&NW did the rebuild , if I remember correctly it ws the Katy that did the re-building and the C&NW following their usual practices bought them second hand and wrung a few more years out of them.

Herer's today more from my trip to Chicagoland.
