Lake Shore Electric Railway Cars

Railroad / Ohio

The Lake Shore Electric Railway is a former interurban railway between Cleveland and Toledo, Ohio. Several LSE cars are abandoned in a rural farm field.


The Lake Shore Electric Railway (LSE), formed in 1901, grew to encompass 60 miles by the 1910s. The Niles Car & Manufacturing Company of Niles, Ohio manufactured most of the LSE cars, while the LSE Sandusky Shop handled others. The Great Depression took its toll on the interurban and the LSE was abandoned in 1938.
