ETR #9 slowly puffs it’s way over the St Jacobs trestle on the hot and sunny afternoon of June 30th 2016 with all the freight cars WCR owns as well as their two cabooses trailing. This was the day Waterloo Central Hosted their rare Freight Photo Shoot Date which gave us railfans the rare opportunity to witness and photograph the good old steamer moving freight between st Jacobs and Elmira and they stopped for many photo runbys. As of 2016 this was said to be the only steam-mixed freight train in Canada so it sure was a treat to be apart of! Fingers crossed this will eventually happen again!  Photo of the entire steam-mixed freight train can be viewed here <a href=http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=32495
