  1. Your welcome man any time! That’s nice that you got more and if you wouldn’t mind im sure a lot of people on here would enjoy em. Take your time you don’t have to do them all at once but I guess this will give you something to do on a day yoy don’t got much going on.

    Overall it’s just nice to see scenes from the past that are very likely never to be repeated like this photo here. Well actually with the addition of the LRT this really is NEVER to be repeated lol as well as pretty much any photo of this Train in evening or mid-day. Once again I love the shot!

  2. Thanks for the comments on the photos. Yes, I do have more digital photos of GEXR on the Waterloo Spur that I can post between 2007-2009. I didn’t photograph really any GEXR movements on the line from 2010 to now as train 584 had basically become a nocturnal operation. Especially now with the addition of the ION system and the rules about GEXR operating over the Waterloo Spur between certain time frames.

  3. Nice one Jason! My fav rail line! I really wish I could have both seen and shot them running up in mid-day but by this time (2007) I’m sure daytime operations of GEXR on the Waterloo Spur were rare and always an opportunity a photographer wouldn’t want to leave behind. Glad some people caught this train in daylight and who knows maybe one day I’ll be lucky enough to see GEXR on this line in daylight. Never say never right? After all Steve mentioned to me that even after LRT Construction began this train still went up in daylight with permission so maybe if were lucky they’ll continue to do the odd mid-day daylight moves and the LRT RTC will have them wait in uptown for the green light to proceed on the LRT portion. btw, got any other photos of this train in mid-day?
