ETR #9 dose it’s regular runby for tourists for its regular Holiday Monday Steam Excursion on Labour Day Monday 2018. This run however did not go as smooth as the volunteers hoped. During the north trip to Elmira from St Jacobs, ETR #9 actually ran out of steam right while the train was crossing Arthur st (aka Highway 86) and stopped right in the middle of the highway. A few seconds later the train was able to reverse a few hundred feet south to clear the crossing and we waited there for several minutes while the volunteers loaded more coal into the old steamer. Once #9 was reloaded, we continues on northbound for a thousand feet or so stopping right before the Scotchline Road rural crossing to do the photo runby for those who hoped to get pictures. After the runby we continued on north to Elmira, stopping just before the Chemical Plants and then we went streight back to the engine shop in St Jacobs and #9 did not have any more problems with the coal.
