Grand River Railway car 864 sitting at the GRR - LE&N Galt Main Street station (facing north on the southbound track, likely a late morning shot due to the light angle). 864 is likely off a LE&N Train north from Port Dover, the #5 to Kitchener. The rails on the right (and spur with boxcar into the Newlands factory) is the CN Fergus Sub. The Galt Main Street Station was mile zero for both the LE&N and the GRR, not to be confused with the CPR Galt Station on the Galt Sub to the north.  Photo taken by Cecil Hommerding, from the collection (Copyright) of Doug Leffler. Substantial caption information provided by George Roth et al with much thanks.
