Last Update: March 1, 2017
I've added photos and/or details to the following pages: The Hamilton and Barton Incline Railway (James Street Incline), The Mount Hamilton Incline Railway/Wentworth Street Incline Railway (East-End Incline), 1892-Electrification of the HSR: From Horses to Horsepower, Early HSR Streetcars, and How Many HSR Horsecars Were Converted To Streetcars?
We've partnered up with Vintage Rail Photos to offer you prints of the HSR! Each photo available from VRP now has a link that will provide you with contact info so you can buy your own high quality print.
For current news and updates on the HSR, visit Hamilton Transit Blog for all Hamilton transit news.
