Ontario Southland Railway

OSR #505, an MLW RS-23, at Guelph in 2009.

The Ontario Southland Railway Inc. is an independently held short line operator. The company was founded in 1992 to purchase 17 miles of track from Canadian Pacific, which travels from Tillsonburg to Ingersoll, Ontario. In 2009, a second line was added, as 32 miles of CP track from Woodstock to St. Thomas, Ontario were integrated into the system. Additionally, Ontario Southland operates the Guelph Junction Railway on behalf of the city of Guelph, Ontario, which municipally owns the line; however, GJR is reported as a separate entity.[1]
