Great timing is when you have the rare chance to photograph OSR beside any train at Guelph Junction. Even better timing is looking through the archives on this site and finding a nearly identical photo from decades past.. as  David Parker  submitted some time ago. The new "flanders" plant would be at far left in DJP's photo, now a mess of CTC signals in mine. Behind the Guelph Junction station is OSR's new station and Engine Shop, the key here is the light post that is in both scenes. This photo was taken from a place I call "Bert's Hill" as Bert Eliander, former Yard master for CP in Toronto for a long time lived on this property and allowed 'fans to stand on it for photos, and we still can today, as long as the new owners let us. I wonder if anyone actually bought the place as it was for sale a few months ago. This would make a great Railfan house. On the same subject, the house that Bisects OSR's Beachville Siding over toward Woodstock is also for sale...

Caption: This photo was made possible by OSR who were kind enough to spot the locomotives just before the boys on CP were coming out to start spraying. With thanks to MDC for arranging it of course :)

Great timing is when you have the rare chance to photograph OSR beside any train at Guelph Junction. Even better timing is looking through the archives on this site and finding a nearly identical photo from decades past.. as David Parker submitted some time ago - meaning we added these to the Time Machine. We also added 2 others - have a look! Took a while to do it, sorry for the delay. Thanks Dave for posting - and keep posting the classics guys, it's great inspiration for us to replicate your work!
