We started the day in Stratford and followed GEXR up the Goderich Sub to Clinton, where they made the southbound move onto the Exeter Sub. We then proceeded to this crossing just south of Vanastra and waited for what felt like an eternity as they crawled over the snow covered tracks. I was hoping for a bit more excitement when they hit the snow at the road, but they were moving much too cautiously for that. They were headed light power to Hensall to lift a boxcar for Exeter (shown here). They dropped the boxcar in Exeter and lifted one for the return trip. All told, the movement down and up the Exeter Sub was very tedious and took up a good portion of the day. We eventually gave up following them and got back to Stratford in time to catch CN 568 with 1439 on point shortly before they departed eastward.
