CN 148, 391, 422, 392, CP 424, and 127 kept my trains-per-hour ratio up on the first nice day in ages.
Scotch Block, Ontario
(map) Scotch Block is an excellent photography location at mp 30.0 CN Halton sub, between Milton and Georgetown.
CN #148 crosses broken rail at 15 miles an hour.
CN #391 crosses two stretches of broken rail at mile 30.
CN #422 finally gets going with a new crew.
CN #392 passes with a long cut of new FBOX boxcars making the smooth noise associated with cars that haven't yet experienced an emergency brake application.
(map) This is where the CN Halton and the CP Galt subs cross eachother, though there is no junction.
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 #127 heads through the Junction.
(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.
VIA #89 with 917 leading crosses Watson Rd. I caught it when I saw a glow on the tracks, returning from ground school.
