April 2nd, 2006

Steve picked us up and we went off to shoot OSR working Guelph on a nice Sunday afternoon. They went South and we gave chase. As we got to Guelph Junction, Shane called about a CN GEVO on CN #435. Naturally we couldn't pass that up! I now have BNSF, UP, CSX, NS, CP, and finally CN GEVOs!

Guelph, Ontario

(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.

OSR switches PDI yard as training for a local school for conductors.

OSR takes one car south from Guelph back to Guelph Junction.

Arkell, Ontario

(map) Arkell is between Guelph and Guelph Junction on the ex-Goderich sub of the Guelph Junction Railway now serviced by the Ontario Southland Railway. Moffat is between Arkell and Guelph Junction.

OSR runs more engines than cars across a dirt road in Arkell.

Moffat, Ontario

(map) Moffat is between Guelph and Guelph Junction on the ex-Goderich sub now serviced by the Ontario Southland Railway. Arkell is between Moffat and Guelph.

Steve and my shutter's open alternately as OSR crosses a field on the approach to Moffat.

Guelph Junction, Ontario

(map) Technically Campbellville, Guelph Junction is the junction of the Guelph Junction Railway -- currently serviced by OSR -- the CP Hamilton sub, and the CP Galt sub. It is between Milton and Galt on the CP Galt sub.

OSR sounds like a real train as it comes across 10 side road at Guelph Junction.

Scotch Block, Ontario

(map) Scotch Block is an excellent photography location at mp 30.0 CN Halton sub, between Milton and Georgetown.

CN #435 passes Scotch Block lookout with CN 2222 on point, a rare escape for CN's new DPU-enabled GEVOs.
