The end of Ottawa's Streetcars in 1959. A commemorative video on Youtube about the streetcars that were "thrown away" by the City of Ottawa on May 4, 1959. This is a special commemorative video of the 50th anniversary of the end of the streetcar system in Ottawa Canada. Source and permission to use the video is from Raymond Langlois. It also has scenes of the 1000 series streetcars in Ottawa, rare because only 4 of this type were made, and they were withdrawn from service some time before the end of the streetcar era in 1959. Regular venue Streetcar service in Ottawa came to on April 30, 1959.

Purpose and goals of Streetcar 696/905 Restoration Group:

  • Goal: To restore Ottawa Streetcars 696 and 905 suitable for public display and fully operational on an outdoor track.

Schedule of events:

The Restoration group.

  • The group normally meets every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in the streetcar barn.

The Streetcar barn is located on the back lot of the 1500 OC Transpo at St. Laurent Boulevard. It is in the former Boyd building and it is a bit tricky to find. It can be accessed from the Tremblay Road bus entrance, and then making a sharp turn left turn, going up a small hill and proceeding about 120 metres. The barn is on the right.
