Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo Railway Co. (1906-1/1987)
Canadian Pacific Railway (1/1988-present)

Background

The Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo was incorporated in 1884 to build from Toronto via Hamilton to the International Bridge over the Niagara River. It was jointly controlled by the New York Central and Canadian Pacific for many years — in the late 1980s CP Rail would acquire sole control, and fold the TH&B into its own operations. TH&B cars can still be found in service, but in ever-dwindling numbers.

Data has been taken from the following ORERs (MM/YY): 5/1905-6/1905, 4/1906, 2/1910, 1/1911-2/1911, 7/1911-8/1911, 1/1912, 1/1913, 1/1914, 1/1915, 3/1915, 5/1915, 8/1915-9/1915, 1/1916, 4/1916, 7/1916-9/1916, 1/1917, 6/1917, 2/1918, 1/1919, 4/1920-5/1920, 1/1921, 10/1921, 1/1922-5/1922, 8/1922, 12/1922-10/1923, 12/1923-1/1924, 3/1924-2/1925, 4/1925-1/1927, 3/1927-12/1927, 2/1928-8/1928, 10/1928-12/1928, 2/1929-5/1929, 8/1929, 11/1929-12/1929, 4/1930, 6/1930-7/1932, 7/1934-4/1938, 10/1938-1/1942, 10/1942-1/1944, 7/1944, 4/1945-10/1954, 4/1955-4/2014, 10/2014-4/2015 & 10/2015-1/2016.
