Canadian Baldwin Electric Trucks

 Donald McQueen and William Thomson; Constructed in Kingston,   1999
The trucks (built under license) were a small part of the Canadian Locomotive Company's product line, better known for their steam engines.
Lake Erie and Northern was an interurban railway that ran from Galt to Port Dover, Ontario from 1914 till 1961 when the electric power was replaced by Canadian Pacific diesels. Passenger service had already been discontinued 5 years earlier.
