There was an abundance of yellow in an extremely weedy Kitchener yard as Goderich-Exeter Railway train 582 with LLPX 2236 sets-off cars while Waterloo Central Railway GE 70-Tonner 1556 is between assignments in the background.

  1. Thanks Brad.

    From the information at the time; the owner of 1556 is Don Broadbear who is a director of the Ontario Southland Railway (OSR) hence a major shareholder so it was being moved to OSR for storage after finishing its tenure on the Waterloo Central. Not too long after, it was moved to the Babcock-Wilcox facility in Cambridge to replace the unit that Don Broadbear had there. Here is a link to a photo that Steve Host took of it while on OSR in Salford last year.

  2. Nice photo. Track work has seen better days. I’m sure CN fixed it up. ;) What is the Waterloo Central doing there?

  3. What a great yard scene Jason. :-)
    The 1556 has a huge view out the back.
