Grand River Railway trolley, Ontario, Canada

"The Grand River Railway (reporting mark GRNR) was an electric railway in what is now the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, in Southwestern Ontario. It was an example of a radial railway.

"In 1931, the Lake Erie and Northern Railway, another CPR subsidiary, was consolidated with the GRR to form the Canadian Pacific Electric Lines. CPEL ended operations on October 1, 1961 when freight service was dieselized and assumed by parent CPR.

"The CPEL ended passenger services on April 23, 1955, and most passenger service was replaced with buses." (wikipedia)
