In the last week of GEXR operations on the Guelph Sub, GEXR 431/432 was doing some odd moves. The train pictured was facing west; however, usually 432 was facing east during the morning hours (during normal GEXR times). This wasn't normal (2020 sound familiar?). What else wasn't normal? The SP on the nose. It was added on in the twilight days of GEXR. It was a nice touch, and I remembered it threw us railfans off, in a good way! Interestingly, 3054 solders on, on the Buffalo & Pittsburgh I believe, in all its glory - SP on the nose, Southern Pacific added back on the sides, and the GEXR symbol still present on the cab! Here's to my favourite locomotive GEXR ever acquired!

  1. Nice shot Kevin. It was a pretty wild last week of GEXR on the Guelph Sub.

  2. Thank you for the info cp5756. I had no idea. I was just going off some recent (within the year) shots from RP.net. Too bad though.

  3. 3054 has been tied up unserviceable at the B&P’s Punxsutawney/Riker yard shops for a few months, supposedly dealt to LTEX as Genesee and Wyoming does not want 20 Cylinder EMD models on their rosters anymore.
