,:;,ateeu de Retlezay, Montreal No.9, May, 1939,
~iON!REAL AND SOUTHERN COmiTIES RAILI,AY
by T. c. H. Smith
The following article is a reurint of a lecture
presented before the ~anadian·Railroad Historical
.A.ssociation, Chateau de Ra:mezay, !,1ontreal, October
Thirteenth, Nineteen H~ndred and Thirty-Seven.
3:lectric railways have not the sar.ne
popular ap?eal as steam railways.
rhey lack the ~lamour of the steam
lOOOJ!lotiv€. Small boys do not Raze wi
th ale as an electric car hums
past: nor do grO …. n men run about
with cameras to pet a shot at the
Interurban, ~s it quietly comes to
a stop at the terminal station.
HOV1€Ver, electric railways have dore
as much for the development and
progress of the terri tory, throllp-h lNhich
they pass, as have the steam
railroads. The Canadian Ra ilroad
Histcrical Association is a society
interested in railroad history, so
some oart of our interest should be
~iven-to the study and recording
the development of electric rail­
ways.
Electric ra il ways are espec ially
suited for fast and frequent ser­
vice. They can be operated econom­
ically by small trains of one or
two cars, and so have a great ad­
vantage in this respect over steam
trains. Single cars can be run at
freauent intervals, instead of
trains of several c~rs pulled by a
stealD. locomotive, and manned by a
crew of five or more, runninp
several hours apart.
An electric railway was first
o08rated in Canada in 1885, when
this novelty was shov!n at the
Toronto Exhibiticn Grounds. T~is
.ias only of an experimental nature
and operated for only tyro .veel.::s in
the :Tear. III 1:366 the City of
Windsor had an electric street
.:.~aij,·.!ay one· and a quarter miles 101.. The
City of St.Catherines, this
past SepternbBr, celebrated the
50th Anniysrsary of what they
claim to be, the first thoroughly
oractical electrified, all-year
transportation systeE in Canada.
This conme~orated the replaci~ of
horse cars on the railway between
St.Catherines and Thorold by
electric9.1ly po;·.rered cars. This
j!as on the Nia~ara, St. Catherines
and Toronto Railvay, now a part Of
tr.e Canad ian National Electric
ra ilways.
The Ottawa Electric dates from
1891 and in 1892 the street rai1-
navs of Montreal and Toront 0 l;ere
electrified. Thflre was a preat
boom of 31ectric railway building
in southcrest3rn Ontario fran this
ti~e up to acout 1914. Lines were
built connecting the various towns
end cities, but many of these are
now abandoned, as the automobile
has encroached on tQeir field of
service. The ?rovince of Quebec
has only ~ small number of elect­
riC railways in its territory,
none of v~ich has be~n abandoned. The
lar~est of these I am to speak
about to-nipht, the Montr.pal and
Southern Counties Rlilway. This
~lectric road is closely relstcd
to tr,e steam railroads, 35 it be­
lo~as to tbo Canadian National and
oD~rates in Dart over rirht-of-l.-ay
that v:as once st~am railroad.
The : .. iontrp.a1 and Southern Coun­
ties Railway Cor.lpany ·.Ias chartered

In 1904 th: first tra!lsDortation
syste~ to the SOllth Shore· o;positc
t!:e Island of ~f!ontr3al, ap~rt from
tr:e steam. trains, .ias ine.u!Iurated
by the MO:ltrAal and South Shore
Auto Car Co, This as the first bus
1 inc in Caned:!, and ;(:as start.1o
l..r.on tr.e autoMobile was in its in­
fancy. The Company operated three
open and t;,o ~losed buses . Th<3Y
were made in Harvey, Illinois and
were 25 h,p.
The bus rou te started at the west
side of Victoria Squar~, ran along
St . Jam-=s St dOl.?n Inspector ,across
Chabo1l1ez Square, alons Notre Dame
dovm t .. lurray, across th-J :¥ellington
St, bridae, end out St.Etip-nne St.,
now Bridge St., to the Victoria
brid~e, The line termi~ated on
Abr-rdcen Ave., St. Lambert. The
purpose VIas to aive 9. ,assenger
service between St .La!1b:~rt and
MO!ltreal, but the Company :7::l.S fin­ancGc, mos
tly by I.{ontreal citizens. T
he bus lin~ did not lest long as
the streets in Montreal and St.
Lambert ,vere in snoh poor conci tion
that op~ration became unpractieal, When
application ,,as !!lsde to the
~ldem.an of St .Anne r s ward to im­

reply v:as, By J-, ,Ie 11 put a new
skin on i til. This nw sl nonsisted of a layer of old macadam wh
ich tore th.e bus tir3s to pieces.
Another inCident, 7hich ~ill appear

-In 1905, by 9.n am.:mdr.l.ont to their
charter, the H.&. S.C.Ry.Co. was em­
powered to t:l(e o

U;c shall ::ikely live to SE!0 this
occur agai:l.
In order to build a rail.·:~y ~e­
tween ~.kmt=eal <;:1.Q the South Shore
it was ~ecessary to cross the river
by ~ bl·ic.p::!, so llP:?lic:ation :!8S
mad~ to t11i: Grand Trunk Railway
for a rinht.-of-we.y on th~ down
stree.:.j side of the Victoria Bridre.
At th5t tim~ vehicular traffic
llsed Doth sides of the bri dRe, the
double train tracks bei~ in the
centre, There ?.9.S only one ap­
proach to the bridqe at the east
end so it W::l.S necessgry for vehicl,
es to cross the railway trec{s at
botp :nds of the struct~re, Today
this has bBp.n entirely eliminated.
After considBreble ne~otiation
i!ith the G.T.R. authorities, and
a p~rsonal inspection of the situ­
at 1:;:1 by Sir Alfred Smithers, ChaiI!llan
01 the Board, permission
was iranted to the r.!.& S.C. to
build 9. track on the dOn -stream
side of the bridge. The up-stream
side to be used for vehicles mov­
ing in both directions as it is
to:day. Tho G.T.R, took a 1~ontrol­
ling interest of the stoc
l
,,:, ~~d
undertook to finance the construc­
tion of the railroad.
The ~.& S.C. next secured rights
over government property by lease,
alonR Riverside, Mill St. and
Blscks Bridge to Con~on St.
