The Niagara, St. Catherine's & Toronto

In the late 1950s only one of these lines still maintained passenger service, The Niagara, St. Catherine's & Toronto. This "international" line crossed the border to the U.S. and was North America's last real full service inter-urban. The N, S and T makes up the final half of this film, divided equally between passenger and freight service and features the very last passenger run in March 1959.

We ran your new Canadian Traction for the East Penn Traction Club. The verdict was unanimous: ‘as good or better than any trolley films we have ever seen.’ This is strong praise from a group who consider your Philadelphia Trolleys the standard of excellence.
