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.

Killean, Ontario

(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.

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.
