GEXR has played a large role in the ION LRT by delivering the new cars to the Commonwealth Plywood siding in Waterloo. The cars don't sit for very long as they are desired to be delivered very quickly. Imagine my surprise to head to Kitchener to find both 431 and a LRT sitting in the yard, mind you, by this time of night (8 PM!) 431 is long off duty and a new crew from Stratford has taxied over to bring 431 across to Stratford. 584 would deliver the LRV that evening and was switching the yard as I took this photo. At any rate, an ex SP SD45 and a Bombardier Flexity side by side is an odd pairing to say the least.

  3. Yes gang. Glad I went.

  4. Nice! This is similar to my shot back in August 2012 here with the same locomotive (in full SP livery) beside VIA 87. Also an odd pairing. Wouldn’t find that out in California!

  5. Right place at the right time :)
