  1. For a more “modern” image of this unit……

  2. According to another photo from a different photographer (Randy Masales) taken on the same day, this image was likely shot on May 25th 1957 during the excursion. See here

  3. This type of locomotive had four GE 251A 250hp traction motors, 1000hp total. Love the L&PS boxcabs, and the pantograph operation allowing higher speeds & current draw than a trolley pole. Great series of pics on this heavy interurban operation. Be neat if somebody could share some of the 3300VAC St. Clair Tunnel electrification (Ontario had an underwater, international mainline tunnel electrification in 1907 – long before the Channel Tunnel!)

  4. Mom took us kids to Port Stanley on L&PS in the mid 50s
