Spring is that great time of year before the weed growth really takes off. This angle was made possible by GJR's recent brush cutting program, but I imagine by now the summer weeds have overtaken this shot already. This pair looks great together and was a nice lunchtime catch.

  1. Now that’s too funny. :-D
    Thanks Jacob.

  2. Hey Larry, just to top it off, around the wye to the left of this image there is a customer with a tall CP switch as in the photo above, but it’s CP target has fallen off and replaced by the large CN style target on top.

  3. Sorry Steve, reading through my last comment I was not very clear. To restate, I have scratched my head and cannot come up with anywhere in the Edmonton area where a CN and CP switch would be in such close proximity to each other. When I look at your photo and see the 2 opposing railways switches together, it does seem unusual. Even at interchange points they will be at the other end of a shared siding or connecting track, not this close. :-)

  4. This is technically Guelph Junction Railway track and is jointly served by CNR (was GEXR) and OSR (was CP). Both companies service this line 5 days a week sometimes more often. Both of the industrial spurs (North and South) branch off from around this point and you can see it on the map for more detail.

  5. Nice indirect lighting for your photo. Another contributor, Jacob P., posted a photo from Guelph a few months ago. Same thing in his picture as yours (except CN train instead of OSR). 2 switches going left and right from the main but one switch is CN style the other is CP. Did they own this line jointly and to customers they served off this joint line they had their own switches? That sounds a little unlikely. Any info will be very enjoyed in putting some light on this mystery. :-)
