On a glorious June spring day.....
 

   And sometimes the day's fanning just happens to all come together.....


   And the word was out....effective July 1986 CP Rail eliminating the Operators' position at Guelph Junction...


   And the fanning was very good that June 8.....three heavy freights within two hours.... on a Sunday morning!


   And so much to do.....chatting with the Operator, checking the GO storage yard, checking the lighting conditions, lining up the photo angles....


   And the Guelph Junction Operator stands her ground to hoop the Orders to the Eastbound's Conductor....


   CP Rail 434607 in service at Guelph Junction, June 8, 1986, Kodachrome by S.Danko


   And oh! It was so busy that morning overlooked recording that young Operator's name !


   And note the 'loaded' train order hoops leaning on the station by the front door......ready for the next one...simply never got better than these times.....
