Ontario's Grand River Valley Electric Railways


Softcover book.

Subtitled: "The story of the area's streetcars, trolley coaches and interurban railways"

This book concentrates on the electric lines of the part of Southern Ontario adjacent to the Grand River (plus a corporate outpost at Woodstock). It tells the story of the area's streetcars, trolley coaches, and interurban railways that provided both local and inter-city passenger, freight, and express delivery services to communities such as Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hespeler, Galt, Preston, Brantford, Woodstock, Ingersoll, Port Dover and many more. It explains how the individual railways began, the politics and economics that impacted their development, their rise and eventual decline. Profusely-illustrated with many rare photos, the book features over 400 images, about 50 of them in superb colour. Fifteen maps provide details on where the lines ran, and an equipment list delivers details on the various companiesí rolling stock.
