GEXR 2073 on point of GEXR 581 as they charge northward at a leisurely pace of roughly 15mph outside of Hensall, Ontario after lifting a lone boxcar at Exeter, Ontario. It was quite the switching maneuver performed to boot. Here they are crossing over Walnut Road. Walnut Road is the first side road north of Hensall. A big thanks to my buddy Jamie Knott for fixing this gem for me, I still haven't mastered editing yet and am very slowly learning the basics. The original was slightly out of level and he also made a few other adjustments for me. I'm not sure what the species of tree is in the shot, but one can only surmise it might be a a Walnut since it's on Walnut Road.
