Lake Erie & Northern Ry.

The LE&N was begun by citizens of Brantford, Ont, as a steam road to connect to Lake Erie in 1911. Before it was completed, it was acquired by the Canadian Pacific, which agreed to electrify the line at the request of the city fathers of Brantford. Track was laid in 1914 and 1915 and passenger service began in 1916. It was a 1500 volt system. From the very beginning, freight service was dominant and passenger service was operated on a 2 hour headway.

After World War II, passenger traffic dropped sharply, and the last cars ran on April 24, 1955. Service continues as a CPR branch.

The line connected with the Grand River Ry at Galt, and equipment was shared extensively.

A pure soul is like a fine pearl. As long as it is hidden in the shell at the bottom of the sea, no one thinks of admiring it. But if you bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes. Thus, the pure soul which is hidden from the eyes of the world, will one day shine before the angels in the sunshine of eternity.

-- St. John Vianney
