I headed down to Ingersoll with Laura to get some scenic photos to help a modeller, and caught some interesting trains in the process. CN #271 had a hotbox going over the detector at mile 53 (Ingersoll is mile 59) on the North track. Unfortunately there are no switches oriented the right way in the area to set off the car with a melted journal and the train tied up the North track for nearly 3 hours while it waited for CN #581 to finish up at Cami and come out, cross over at Blain, 8 miles to the East, and put the car in an industrial track near Beachville.
(map) The CN Dundas, the CP St. Thomas, and the OSR Port Burwell subs are very active through Ingersoll, with the CP Galt sub just to the North in Zorra.
VIA #71 does its station stop at Ingersoll station, but finds no passengers waiting to get on and has none getting off.
CN #331 with CN-UP-WC-CN power heads through near the St. Mary's sub switch.
CN #581 heads over the hump on its way to rescue hotbox-infected CN #271.
VIA #72 heads through the station without stopping.
CN #271 finally heads through after spending the morning at Beachville.
CN #581 follows CN #271 through the station on its way to the crossover at Lihou.
CN #385 heads through the station.
CN #435 heads through the station.
CN #434 heads through the station preparing to stop to do work at Beachville yard.
(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 #431 is led by CN 9540 through CN Guelph Junction.
