Springbank Train

In the mid 60’s London Central Lion Club was approached by then mayor Gordon Stronach asking if we would be interested in buying the little stream train in Springbank Park. This train had been operating since 1921 and Jim Kennedy, the owner, was selling it to people who wanted to move it out of London.  Gordon Thompson of Supertest Petroleum did not want the train to be moved and was willing to help to finance the purchase.  In 1966 the London Central Lions Club became the owners and operators of the train and had it refurbished with a gasoline engine.  The Club operated the train until 1990 when we decided to donate it to London PUC.
