In 2 hours and 20 minutes, we saw 7 trains at the Junction, punctuated by a UP tunnel motor that Jay had dispatched us to and an ex-BN CEFX loco still in green paint.
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.
CP 5605 leads a southbound down the Hamilton sub with an item 7 (protect-against) against Hamilton turn from begin/end to 602-3.
The first in a 4-train parade of eastbounds passes us with a UP tunnel motor in second place.
The second in a 4-train parade of eastbounds passes us with CEFX 7099, an ex-BN SD40-2, in trailing position.
The third of 4 in an eastbound parade passes us with a CEFX AC4400CW 1039 leading, followed by 4 multimark SD40-2s and a SOO engine mixed in.
A CP intermodal train finishes off an eastbound parade through the Junction with a pair of SOO SD60s leading.
