St. Thomas L&PS Corridor Set to Open September 20
Bringing Rail Back to the Railway Capital
St. Thomas, ON, July 22 2013 – The St. Thomas Economic Development Corporation would like to announce the Grand Opening Event for the newly constructed London & Port Stanley (L&PS) Corridor September 20th – 22nd 2013.
The event will kick-off downtown at the Corridor (600 Talbot St.) on the 20th with a ticketed gala and the inaugural train ride leaving from the L&PS Station to Port Stanley. The train will continue to run on the 21st and 22nd on a shortened route within St. Thomas. The Saturday and Sunday portion of the festivities will be open to all with food, entertainment, and free train rides.
The Grand Opening signifies the return of the train to St. Thomas. For years the L&PS ran between London, St. Thomas and Port Stanley, bringing travellers to places like Downtown St. Thomas, Port Stanley’s main beach or the swing and big band performances at the Stork Club.
This is a historically significant event for the City and it is expected that both the turnout and the local impact will be huge.
To learn more about the event, please contact Megan Pickersgill, Tourism Coordinator, at 519-631-1680 ext 4132 or email@example.com or visit www.railwaycorridor.com.
