Rock on - Crew from the first operating GEXR job for the Guelph Junction Railway signifies to 147's hogger to rock on as they pass at the west end of Guelph Junction.
Due to paperwork issues, the all-clear to begin operations wasn't given until 1600 on September 1'st. The crew quickly began working the yard facing west, meeting T69 and 147 in the process before shutting 'er down a few hours later. Expecting the first train to Guelph tomorrow morning unless they run tonight. Anything's possible at this point. 
Photo notes, 400mm lens, cropped from 1'st line.
