In 1957 I was on an LP&S excursion out of London, two of their interurban electric passenger cars (10 and 8) were used. On the way we took a box car (to help pay the "rent"). The two cars are seen here switching the boxcar by the LP&S station in St. Thomas, ON.

[Editor's note: both cars 8 and 10 (built 1915 and 1914 resp. by Jewett) are preserved today, with 8 residing at the Halton County Radial Railway in operating condition, and 10 at the Canadian Railway Museum/Exporail in St. Constant QC. Info from the Canadian Trackside Guide]
