A lady looks out her front door to witness a GMD-1 in the driveway and Engineer Doug Blue rings the bell for Crimea st as they round the wye in Guelph. With a storm quickly approaching, L542 would basically park their train for lunch, for in a few minutes there will be a torrential downpour as a severe storm hit town.

  1. I’m guessing that most of us here would love to have a GMD-1 in the driveway. :-)

  2. Not them. In fact they aren’t a fan of trains – owners of the house grew up there (parents handed it down to them) and have lived there for multiple generations, and are Seniors.

    It was surprising to hear given how darn close they are to it all. There would have been some very long trains using that wye during the Douglas Point oil trains in the 70′s..

  3. That house has sure seen a lot of railway history. Really nice angle Steve.

  4. Another oddity is the left side crossing signals.
