 The Wentworth-Burlington route

The Wentworth-Burlington route

Start of service: 1930
End of service: 1935?
Route: From Mount Hamilton Incline Railway at top of Wentworth to Burlington & Wellington via Wentworth, King, James and Burlington.
Antecessor route: Wentworth-Stuart route

With the closing of the Canadian National Railway station (ex GTR, ex GWR) on Stuart street in 1930, all service on Stuart St was discontinued. This resulted in changes to the HSR system, one of which was the creation of the Wentworth-Burlington route. This route ran from the Mount Hamilton Incline Railway at top of Wentworth to Burlington & Wellington via Wentworth, King, James and Burlington. This route was short lived, ending sometime in the 1930s. Service on Wentworth was replaced by the Wentworth route.
