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.

October 22nd, 2008

Needing a poutine fix, I headed to Pierre's Poutine on Macdonnell, easily the best poutine west of the Quebec border, and then went over to Guelph station for GEXR #432. While we were waiting for it to come through Guelph, OSR indicated on the radio that the Guelph Junction Express was coming to a stop at the River Run. A few minutes later, 432 went through the station and the GJE arrived, and I missed a chance to shoot them together on/under the viaduct. I then chased the GJE back to Victoria Rd on its way home.
