Goderich-Exeter Railway (GEXR) train 580 with SLR GP40-3 3806 and RLK GP40 4095 make a daylight appearance to switch the Ampacet Corporation Canada facility in Kitchener. This is currently the last active regular customer on the Huron Park Spur and is serviced as required. Convoy Supply, which is located on the spur as well did still receive a few cars this spring, however these are seasonal shingle carloads. Not far from the Ampacet facility, the Huron Park Spur had been taken out of service even though the rails are still in place to Manitou Drive. In recent years, the rusting former Budd Canada support yard tracks in the foreground have been utilized to store cars. Since the transition from GEXR to CN in November 2018, CN now once again services Ampacet Corporation Canada just as they did 20 years ago.
