The company also sold number of its distinctive ‘Prairie-style’ cars to operators in Albertamarker and Saskatchewanmarker; one of these cars is being restored by the Saskatchewan Railway Museummarker.The company was sold to Philadelphia-based J. G. Brill and Company in 1921, and the Preston plant closed in 1923. Only a few Preston-built cars now remain, most of them in the collection of the Halton County Radial Railwaymarker museum.
