Traction Right of Way - C. W. Ellis Collection
London & Lake Erie station at Union, ON

This image is believed to have been taken north of Union where the line curved onto Fruit Ridge Line. (Thanks to Rob Sterne) It shows the Traction Line Right-of-Way alongside a road. The line's original dual-wire setup can clearly be seen here. The second wire was never pulled down when the road switched over to DC operation. Also apparent is the light (60lb) rail and lack of ballast. To view this image full size, click HERE. A present day image by Rob Sterne can be seen HERE
