  1. Excellent work Graydon – it was also great to meet you earlier that day. I was hoping to chase to St. Jacobs trestle but this is where they got held up by WCR who was preparing for a big excursion, delaying 584 for a solid hour, meaning darkness.

  2. Thank you Steve and it was cool to meet you too! Really wish I could’ve known of all the best photo locations in best light at this time of day before this night (best night I had in best light) but I’m sure when I look back at this I’m sure I’ll be happy at what I was able to accomplish. After all, this is history now right?
    I have a couple more photos from this night as well which I hope make it into here at some point (some years down the road). Now what do you think I owe my dad for being king enough to take a few hrs out of his evening to drive me to Kitchener so i can photograph this now historical scene?

  3. Well, the best thing to do is scope out a line first.. if you have time. At 10 miles long, it wouldn’t have been that difficult.

    And yeah, take your dad out for a meal or something, show him some gratitude, he’ll very much appreciate it :)

  4. Great scene! You did really well on the line this summer for photo locations.

  5. Thanks Jay! Knew you’d like this and yes I’d say I had a very successful summer with checking off the photo locations for this line! As of 2019 and beyond this will all be under the cover of darkness!
