In Guelph, the August long weekend is now known as John Galt Day. These are shots taken by me and my wife of the move of the handcars GHRA ran, borrowed from the historical railway group in Palmerston, and then only by my wife of the festivities -- and of course of VIA #85 crossing the viaduct.
(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.
Two handcars are delivered to the Guelph Junction Railway and tested ahead of John Galt day celebrations which include free handcar rides.
