Description

Newspaper clipping from the Welland Tribune, c. 1959, showing the NS&T (Niagara, St. Catharines and Toronto) train waiting to cross tracks. The last run for the NS&T was March 28, 1959, and it was the last interurban electric railway operating in Canada.

The captioned text reads: "Interurban waits for clearance before crossing tracks of Toronto, Hamilton, and Buffalo Ry. and New York Central's Buffalo-Detroit line, just west of Welland. During operation of line, orders to proceed were issued when towerman was sure no trains were due."
