A reunion of sorts -  OSRX 8235 (CP 8822) and RLK 2211 (CP 8210) reunited on the Goderich-Exeter.. Note that this photo is only possible today due to Knight Lumber buildings coming down after they closed in 2011. Land is CN owned and was leased for 107 years. A station occupied a site just to the right of the photographer when this was the terminus of the Great Weatern Railway branch from Lynden to Guelph via Galt/Preston/Hespeler from 1855-1870's.

  1. Brad, the GEXR is power short so they leaded OSRX 8235 until their power issues are resolved.

  2. Any idea why there’s OSRX power on a Goderich-Exeter train?
