Engr. Snook has his train steady on the slow order through Kent St and 3394 is framed in matching fall oranges and yellows. Every year the colours differ but in 2016 they matched exactly with the G&W scheme - with great colour all over town I had a lot of fun finding photo angles to try. This one really spoke to me but I knew I needed orange in the lead and the window of foliage opportunity is about a week. Furthermore, it usually did not take long for 3054 to get put in the lead so I had to strike while the iron was hot. It was cloudy all day - but just as the train rounded the bend at Guelph Station the sun came out and made those fall oranges and yellows pop brilliantly - making my day. Heck this is probably one of my favorite fall colour photos to date.
