Project Description

London & Port Stanley Railway 4

Fleet Number: 4 Built: 1915
System: London & Port Stanley Railway Retired: 1961
Builder: Jewett Car Co. Acquired: 1971
Type: DE-DT Interurban Status: Awaiting restoration

L&PS 4 was originally planned to be part of a transportation exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre (like L&PS 8), but instead ended up as part of the Ossawippi Express restaurant operation in the city of Orillia. Skyline bought the Orillia property for redevelopment and donated L&PS 4 to the Association in 2012. It was brought to the museum where it is currently awaiting restoration. Unlike its sister car 8, 4 still retains all of its original interior woodwork. These two cars were reunited on the rails for the first time in nearly 50 years at the museum.
