I wasn't going to miss the CBC engine again, in spite of the bad light. I caught GEXR #580 working at the Fergus sub yard while I waited a few minutes for VIA #85 and the CBC unit to show, and then caught GEXR #432 at the now-closed Cityview crossing between Victoria and Watson.
(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 #85 with VIA 6403 - the CBC unit - leading crosses Alma road at CN Guelph Junction.
GEXR #580 crosses Alma road on the Fergus sub at CN Guelph Junction just seconds after the Via.
GEXR #432 crosses the closed Cityview crossing at mile 47 Guelph sub.
