With the motive power on Goderich Exeter trains 431/432 typically the same most days, the challenge becomes finding new locations and different scenery. The stretch of track between Limehouse and Acton is a personal favourite for me as it often pushes train 431 to the limit especially when the train is light on motive power. The grade west up the Niagara Escarpment can often challenge even the most skilled engineers, and the sound can’t be done justice with a photo. Here we find train 431 with a borrowed SD40 off sister road SOR in the lead as the train struggles westward on Acton’s east side putting on a good show, about halfway back in the train is a new LRT trainset destined for the new Kitchener Waterloo LRT project.
