Four of us went to the London/Komoka area to see where CP, CN, and GEXR meet.

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.

GEXR 432 comes up from the West through Guelph sporting GEXR's RailAmerica engine. This is the first video with my new camera, a Canon PowerShot S45 and it is 3 minutes in length.

Woodstock, Ontario

(map) The CP Galt and CN Dundas subs meet here, as do highways 401 and 403. It is a busy place.

London, Ontario
