Switching the yard lead and sandwiched between Cobourg lane and Kent St, L568 is working on their set off in Stratford yard while the town and railway seem integrated, not separated. Believe it or not the foreground track is the Guelph subdivision mainline, and just to the far left is Stratford West where the GEXR Goderich sub branches off. A quaint scene reminiscent of many branchline towns north of here, long gone. Fencing and other safety measures are sure to eliminate the rural look of this scene in due course - it's already happened in Guelph and Kitchener.
