I went down to the Galt sub for #159 and #243, catching them quickly and returning home. After lunch I went back out, getting GEXR #432 in Guelph, and CN #396, #148, and #435 at mile 30.
(map) This is CP's name for the passing track at Cambridge on the CP Galt sub.
CP #159 crosses Gore Rd. after finally getting clearances through a work train and a foreman's working limits. I didn't wait after the power to get back to a better shot for CP #243 which was already up to the next signal.
CP #243 creeps up behind CP #159.
(map) The city of Guelph is my home town and is just East of Kitchener-Waterloo on the GEXR Guelph sub, and the Ontario Southland Railway/Guelph Junction Railway track, the other end of which is at Guelph Junction.
GEXR #432 passes through Guelph station with all three of GEXR's red and grey units, although unfortunately not all together.
Scotch Block, Ontario
(map) Scotch Block is an excellent photography location at mp 30.0 CN Halton sub, between Milton and Georgetown.
CN #396 climbs the escarpment with three CN spartan cab SD40 variants.
CN #148 climbs the escarpment as some of the railfans at the point make fools of themselves guessing the lead engine and prancing in front of the camera.
CN #435 heads west with its obligatory GP9u trailing.
