 Hamilton Transit History

Last Update: October 1, 2022

So after last month's disapointment, this month we have new photos and details added to the following pages: Early HSR Streetcars, the Final Fate of Radials and HSR Streetcars and Buses, HSR Horsecars, and Radial, HSR and CCL Accidents, 1925 to present and unknown.

Visit us on Facebook!

We've partnered up with The Sirman Collection and Vintage Rail Photos to offer you prints of the HSR! Each photo available 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.
