Company History: The Cornwall Street Railway was a tram service in Cornwall, Ontario that operated from 1889 until 1949, and then as a trolley bus service until 1970 when it was replaced by a conventional bus service known as Cornwall Transit. For much of its history, the company was owned by Sun Life Assurance.
The Street Railway was one of a very few that also ran freight using electric locomotives on the same lines, connecting the industrial areas along the river bank on either side of town to the Grand Trunk Railway on the northern side of town. Freight services continued after the passenger service ended.
