London and Port Stanley Railway cars 16 (closest to the camera) and 23 pause to have their picture taken on the Kettle Creek bridge in St. Thomas.  The occasion was a railfans' excursion from London to Port Stanley Beach and return.  Such outings were frequent in the line's later years in anticipation of the end of regular passenger service which came in 1957.  Both of the cars pictured were acquired from The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company during the second world war.  16 is preserved at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, Illinois.
