Welp, that's all folks. In better days, CN 1408 had the mainline all by itself as it led L568 from Kitchener to London and back, here seen crossing eastward on the Guelph subdivision.

  5. A L568 to be remembered for sure. That’s an excellent photo.

  6. I was surprised the GMD-1′s were resurrected 15 years ago when we spotted one at Bayview. And that they lasted this long! They will be sadly missed. Thanks Steve for this one!
